It was a bit loud with the restaurant right below but was relatively nice. The beach is just beautiful. Was very hard to sleep with the noise. I was there during a christmas party...but the next night was also loud. Fun place if you enjoy the bar scene and short walk home :)

Hi KatieLynn323,

Thanks for your feedback. You stayed with us during peak summer season in December 2013 which was the busiest season for both Afrovibe and PiliPili Beach Bar thus far. In fact, the season was MUCH busier than what we had anticipated hence the noise levels were higher than normal.

We hope that you choose to stay with us on your next visit to South Africa so that you can experience our venue with a bit more of a relaxed atmosphere. :-)

Kind regards,
Lyle

Epic views of the ocean, wonderful in-house restaurant by the beach, brilliant crowd.. It's all that you want to feel young again! The best place to stay in Sedgefield, it is great value for money as well- Additionally, it has got all the must-have connections/deals for stuff to do on the garden route- making life very easy!

My Friend Lauren and I left CapeTown headed out to some town called Sedgefield not expecting to find our favourite backpackers and town in South Africa. We planned on just checking it out, staying a couple days - a week later we found ourselves more sad then ever hopping on a bus back to Cape Town.

The staff here was incredible, we were always greeted with a smile and they helped us organize many trips in the Sedgefield area. We headed to Bloukrans and did the bungee jump, ate oysters in Knysna, toured a township, rode ostriches, walked with lions, along with many other activites - all thanks to the staff at Afrovibe. Every morning the staff asked us what we wanted to do and they helped us figure out how to do it.

On top of the incredible staff and activities - the rooms and location were great. You can see the ocean from the backpackers. There is an attached bar called PiliPili that really added to the friendly and fun atmosphere. We stayed in a dorm and then stayed in a double room after that and both were great, comfortable, and affordable.

I would definitely recommend visiting Sedgefield and staying at Afrovibe - you have the ocean, friendly staff, tons of activities and you will definitely remember this place forever. I know I will.

After a few hours from our start, Cape Town, we arrived in Afrovibe Hostel, the first stop to continue the road trip on the day after.

All we want was a shower, a very nice dinner and have a little fun to relax on that night.

We´ve checked-in and the hostess took and showed us to the beds.

The ambiance were clean and clear even though the hostel were almost 100% booked.

The architectural project is amazing, the place arounded by a terrace and on the roof top you can see and hear the beach.

Downstairs you can find the restaurant and have a nice braai at evenings. The serve also conventional food and exotic drinks.

The bathroom were clean and in perfect conditions.

I recomend this place always to those planning garden route trip.

Room Tip: try to ask for the terrace rooms

Afrovibe is by far one of the best speciality lodging I have ever been to. Myoli beach is also one of the most beautiful beaches, can get a bit windy (not Capetown windy so it not bad ;) )but perfect for kite-surfing and other awesome water-sports that require a great open sea and a bit of wind. This lodge is right on the beach and has great vibe, restaurant and rooftop view. Sedgefield is a real gem in between Knysna and the Wilderness. The walks on this beach are great... do yourself a favour walk to the end of the beach climb on "Lions" rock, look to your right and you will see so much beauty. Afrovibe has a great bar which can get rowdy at times esp on weekends ... but hey its a fun loving busy lodge :)

The place is amazing!

I love the location a lot as it's right next to the beautiful beach. You can change your clothes, leave your shoes, walk through the sand directly to the beach, which gives you the wonderful view!

The open hire is also a highlight, they have the fire in the middle of the back garden area the whole night and it's just so comfortable and relaxing to sit down in the night, have some drinks and just chill out. I feel that I can sit there the whole night either with friends or just by myself. There is a black and chubby dog there, and he likes to sit and sleep next to me when I was next to the fire, sorry I didn't get his name, cute dog!

I enjoyed the bar in the same building with it too, great deal drinks! And the music is good too!

A minor problem is that there is no wifi in the room and we have to go to the registration room for the covering, it's fine if it's summer, but it was winter there then and it was just that comfortable.

A suggestion: it would be great if the lodge could provide some slippers in the room for the guests to use. This way, we could wear them either to the beach or just for use after we wash off the sand from the beach!

Room Tip: You can have your own room if you don't want to party too late, or you have a tired day and just...

We have noted your suggestion about wifi coverage in the rooms and will consider this suggestion when upgrading our wifi routers.
