Great location, helpful staff, room size good. There is a really good breakfast/coffee cafe 2 mins walk away! Highly recommend Jolly Dolphin for a beer. Two down sides, bed rock soild and wifi to slow to use Skype.

We stayed for one night in December 2016 and felt a little let down. We felt that the pictures we saw online were not a true reflection of what the place looks like now. The rooms definitely need to be fitted with fans as we hardly got any sleep as it was hot the night that we stayed. Other that...

Staff were professional, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much. It was clean and neat. Everything was as excepted from a backpacker. Only negative was the condition of the kitchen at times, but this was due to the other guests.

We only stayed one night because we did a road trip. But for this proposition was the jeffrys Bay backpackers the perfect choice. It's a perfect place to meet people from all over the world. The people there have much fun and feel conftibale.

After having stayed at an amazing backpackers in Jbay we were slightly disappointed by what we experienced at Jeffreys Bay Backpackers. With such an amazing location you would think it would be much cleaner and more well maintained. Not recommended for anything other than a bed for the night. Friendly staff and cheap accommodation.

Well situated in town center, still a stroke away from the beach. We could have been advised earlier the shower wasn't working. Nice and tidy room and very helpful receptionist/responsable. Good value for money

We arrived in the early hours of the morning at the unreasonable time of 04:30am. (We did arrange form this prior to arrival). We had a friendly reception and were accommodated in clean and comfortable rooms. They even took 3 terribly dirty mountain bikes inside! some may regard the area as dodgy but we did'nt experience any problems. Its close...

We were on a trip with overseas guests and we stayed at various backpackers. This one needs a serious makeover and facelift. It has so much potential, but has a very derelict vibe about it. Very friendly staff. The shower you could barely get into, forget about brushing teeth comfortably.
