The hostel was a great place to stay. Staff were great and brought a lot of character to the visit. Visit the store just down the street to grab some meat to braii (BBQ) at night for dinner.

Orin's Knysna wow tour is a great overview of the Knysna area. He takes you on a packed day through the area including canoeing, a visit to the Knysna heads, a forest hike, and a tour of the township complete with a meal and a visit to the Rastafarian community. He's full of lots of facts about the town and its surroundings.

SA is wonderful - and our stay at the Island Vibe was the best part. A place to have an entertaining braai until late in the evening, relax during the day and, most of all, a place to make friends. We'll truly never forget what we experienced here. The staff is really helpful and the best company to make a great night even greater. We can honestly highly recommend this place and have nothing else to say than: "thank you, until next time".


Had an awesome time in this hostel, great employees and management. Had a really fun time over there, rooms were fine. We organized a beer pong tournament with the hostel and we just had a great time overall, was a crazy night for sure.

Our stay at Island Vibe was very enjoyable. The staff were very helpful and the facilities great. The private room was spacious and well priced. Very convenient and secure with a hire car too. Small pool and BBQ/bar form a lively hub. Easy walk to town/waterfront.
