“4 girls from Cape town for the Jay - Bay surf tour weekend 13 - 16 july 2012”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

This is a short story and a review combined!!!!! We made our way from CT to jeffs bay to watch the pro tour just to find out on arrival that this year the competition was pushed on the same day and ended about 3 hours before we arrived in the little town, on our way to the spot we were meant to stay at we find out that our accommodation bookings were a little messed up but after sorting things out and thanks to Lauren and his hospitality we ended up at the 99 miles beach lodge in PE which turned the entire trip around.

The place is awesome, we stayed in our dorm room everyone together and had a blast, the area is safe, staff is friendly,free wifi, secure parking, open kitchen, lounge area and games, pool, met Lendi (really nice guy). All in all the girls had a great time and if ever we are that side again we will stay there. Thanks again to Lauren and the guys from the Lodge. All the best to the lodge .....from The Cape Town girls :)))

I stayed for two night in the 6 bed dorm. Very good place to stay. Safe and quiet. The staff was very helpful and the Internet connection very good. Stayed there for two nights and I will stay again when I revisit PE.

We had a huge suite (nearly as big as our 1 bed flat!), which was a bit tired but had everything required including a fridge. The hostel has a decent pool and enthusiastic manager whilst the gated off street parking was a bonus as was the free wifi. Cheap and cheerful with a lot of potential if they decided to spend some serious money on it. We only required it as a base before catching a flight and it was within a short drive of the airport so fitted the bill.

We stayed for two nights in a double ensuite room and it was huge! It had a double bedroom, bathroom and kitchen/living room with fully stocked modern kitchen. The secure parking at this backpackers is also very good and there is free wifi access (which we could just about get in our apartment). This is a very reasonably priced backpackers.

However, the not so positive. We specifically stayed at this backpackers after glowing write ups of the place in the 'Coast to Coast' booklet and various flyers which referred to the place as 'luxury backpacking' and made reference to the pool and jacuzzi. However, the pool and jacuzzi looked like they hadn't been touched or cleaned for months, and there was no water in the jacuzzi. The apartment itself was nice but certainly not clean and very tatty around the edges. The bedding was cheap and not especially clean (the white pillows were more a shade of brown...). We didn't find the staff especially helpful or interested in giving us tips for the local area.

Good value for money but not what is advertised. This is definitely a good backpackers but there are much better ones available for a similar price

Great lodge with various facilities: big parking space, a huge living room with leather sofas, tv, open fire place, a big pool to swim in, a jacuzzi, a braai area, massive kitchen, free internet and WIFI.
I stayed one night at 99 miles in a room with shared bathroom. The appartment is huge - kitchen, living room, bathroom to share with one other room. The staff is incredible friendly and helpful. More than a backpacker needs is available for a very good price!
Thank you Evangelista! :)

We stayed 3 nights at 99 miles in a room with shared bathroom. Because no one was staying in the other room of "our" appartment we had the appartment, kitchen, living room, bathroom for our own. It was great. the Staff is veeery friendly and helpful. We felt very safe since they have a car and entrance gate where you can only enter with the PIN.
WiFi is also available and a computer station. All a backpacker need is available for a good price :)
