              Miss leading”

              What i saw on internet as per the room i paid for was different from what i witnessed, very tiny room that i could hardly move. They could not change the room because that was the last room so i left without sleeping even though i had paid for two night. Was told i can not be refunded because i paid through an agent (Agoda). I was really told breakfast was not included on arrival before i saw the tiny room.

              Wonderful!”

              Island Vibe is a really nice place just after the crowd on the main beach of Port Ellizabeth. Max was really nice, helpful and insightful about what we can do in PE. The room was brilliant. They even have a common Jacuzzi.

              Everything was dirty and filthy. They not really take a lot of effort to keep the hostel comfortable to stay at. The location would be actually quite good. But we didn't enjoy our night there.

              We stayed at island vibe port elizabeth while visiting my partners family we absolutely loved our stay at Island Vibe our rooms were so clean and spacious with cleaning staff knocking on our door each morning asking if we want our room cleaned. The staff could not do enough for you, you felt part of there family while staying there.I felt really safe staying at Island Vibe It was the first time I felt I could leave my bag in the room without worrying about something happening, same with food in the fridge what you put there stays there, they also had security at night time. I really love how they looked after there guests thank you to all the staff at Island Vibe for our great stay we look forward to coming back next year

              Good location: facilities need care”

              I write this review primarily for those who might be particular. The IVBH is quite run down and there are a number of things that cannot be enjoyed fully that they list as amenities because of it. As I read elsewhere the pool has algae, as well as the hot tub was a very odd color green. No one used the pool, but a few travelers hopped in the hot tub, so it is still functional. The hot tub areas outdoor furniture is falling apart or the cushioning is moldy. I planned to use the oven; on my tour I was told there were two, come to find the built-in was broken and the stand alone oven was so old the temperatures weren't displayed. Other travelers mentioned the pool tables cues were so terrible it was basically pointless to play. On another note, there was also only one tea towel for the two nights I was there for all of the kitchen, I didn't think to ask for a new one, but it should be provided. Overall, I thought much more highly of the staff and the location is definitely great, but I don't think this place rates anywhere near an 8 and that's ok, as long as future travelers know what they are getting for their money.
