Hi Fabian Thank you for choosing us and for your valued feedback. 3 nights is a good time to spend in Jbay as it almost affords you enough time to partake on the activities available and at times the much needed space to recover from our party nights.

I should start by admitting that we weren't really backpacking when we stayed in island vibe, we just wanted to relive our former glories. That said, it's actually a great hostel. The staff are brilliant and the facilities match up. The bar was being renovated while we were there so we missed out on the full experience but this is...

Island vibe is located right by the beach, also not far from the billabong and quicksilver factories. The bar is open until last man standing, and the service is great. They offer lots of activities that are mainly cheap to do.

Dear Iselin Thank you for choosing Island Vibe Jbay and for your valued feedback. Our location is not something mentioned enough, with a distance of a stone throw away from the beach and a 280 degree sea view it is indeed one of a kind. I hope you were one of the last men/women standing at vibrant bar perhaps even...

Camped here for a couple of nights. Great place to meet other travellers and the staff are very nice and accommodating. Just don't pitch tent too close to the bar as can et quite noisy early in the morning around breakfast time, also closer to the trees block some of the morning Sun as it can hit very quickly!
