Reviewed 15 April 2014

We just went there for a day without booking in advance and were very happy to get the stylish decorated, spacious and fully equipped penthouse. The Manager Tayrene was very friendly and we enjoyed chilling in the whirlpool after a very tiring day. From the guest house you can easily walk to restaurants, shops, beach (very beautiful!), surf schools and board rental places. Jeffreys Bay is pretty cool and so is Funky Town!

Thanks for our wonderful stay at Funky town. When we come back to Jeffrey's Bay then we will stay again at funky town. We stayed at the flat and the flat has all what for a short stay is necessary, fridge, microwave, etc.

For the price, the establishment can at least provide some form of breakfast. Nice room, but a bit over priced for out of season. No TV in room, only communal TV and kitchen down stairs. Parking also bit problematic to move vehicles early morning.

Thank you for your review of FunkyTown and all your points have been noted and implemented. We now have a Breakfast-in-a-basket for our guests in the mornings. This is a "good-morning breakfast made up of muffins, croissants, cheese, jams and cream cheese

With regard to TVs in the bedrooms it is our philosophy to create "socialisation of travel" between all our guests i.e. (if possible) to cook and eat together, watch sport channels in our TV lounge and socialise where possible.

We appreciate all our guest reviews as we always strive to ensure our Guests have the best possible stay at FunkyTown.

We look forward to seeing you again in the future

With Kind regards

Great location, very secure with individually alarmed bedrooms. Pool area and garden was a real plus and immaculately kept. The communal lounge and kitchen were very modern and we felt comfortable using the internet there and having a chat to fellow guests. Customer service from the manager and cleaning staff was exceptional.

Gorgeous place to stay, everything was a pleasant surprise that exceeded my expectations.
Supreme customer-oriented service (thank you Tayrene for taking such good care of us, you're a perfect hostess!), friendly staff, colorful and original design of private and common areas, awesome local art on display, comfortable room with rainshower in the bathroom, very clean, affordable price, laundry facilities available, well-equipped sleek kitchen, outdoor braai area with a plunge pool and jacuzzi, walking distance from JBay downtown and seashore, what else could you wish for?
It's a cool flashpacker hostel with a great vibe. I truly enjoyed my time at FunkyTown and I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

Superb staff. Cool decor. Lively colours, tastefully decorated. Great local artists on display. Fresh linen daily. Loved the jacuzzi. Should serve cocktails. Airport transfers in the resident bus a wonderful experience. Excellent location next to bars and restaurants. We will be returning and will recommend to our friends.

FunkyTown absolutely rocks...and at this remarkable price, it's a no-brainer for any traveler. We will not stay anywhere else for future visits to Jbay. Stunning decor, amenities, close to beach, jacuzzi and pool. FAB FAB FAB

Room Tip: The top rooms can get hot, so opt for ground level.
