Me and my friend planned to stay two nights at Afrovibe - and doubled our time of stay there because it was so lovely! Just everything was right: the location at the beach, the beatiful rooms with nice clean bathrooms, great stone-oven baked pizza and - above all - the wonderful people working there who made us feel truely welcome. Especially big thumbs up to those two people of staff who are gifted musicians and - besides taking real good care of us - made our nights special with their performing on guitar and drums. Big thanks to the two of you!

We stayed at Afrovibe for a night with a group of 10 on our Garden Route trip. It was a wonderful night! Great location, super fun atmosphere and amazing staff. The guys of Afrovibe made our experience a fantastic one, It was very very nice and I would love to go back there. Definitely worth staying here!

We happened to spend a night here on Sunday night. ( I was in Garden Route Tour with other tourists ) Our guide explained that almost every restaurant in Sedgefield is closed on Sundays, So we had to eat dinner at this hostel. Yes, Sedgefield was so quiet when we arrived and we found the restaurant ( in the hostel) full ! Still, it was rather quiet.
The 6-bed-dorm I stayed is just above the restaurant. I left the restaurant a bit earlier than everybody else. I think the restaurant was open till 23:00 or so because it was Sunday. Still nothing bothered me when I was sitting in the dorm. Probably there weren't party people staying at that night. Next morning, there was no garbage scattering in the parking. It was a peaceful morning.

Breakfast is lovely (40R). It was served from 7:30.
Dorm (en suite) is very basic. I think you probably have to pay for towel.
I wish there were more public bathrooms/toilets beside of each room. The only public toilet we can use is the one in the restaurant.

All staffs are friendly at both reception and restaurant.

My husband and I found Afrovibe a week before we decided to go on honeymoon and I will never regret it.

Afrovibe Adventure Lodge is truly a lodge for people with good spirits, that are fun and outdoor lovers. Especially the beach. Afrovibe is situated in a perfect location over looking the beach with a stunning view from your balcony.

The friendliest staff who are more like family make you feel right at home, with great advice on what to see, they even help you plan your day trips and activities. they suggest what is best suited for the weather and always helpful when you have a quesion.

The perks:
* Most of the activities are on your doorstep
* You are right on the beach
* Below your room is one of the best beach bars you will ever experience - PiliPili beachbar BEST PIZZA EVER!!
* It looks a lot like a little paradise.
* It is very affordable if you enjoy doing a whole lot of activities.
* Afrovibe even have their own guitar lessons :)

Afrovibe has started me on this quest for backpacking.. but it is definitely my new favourite escape and I look forward to seeing the afrovibe adventurers there!!

Room Tip: If you are a couple I would definitely suggest a double room - Room no.5 it has the best view both i...

Afrovibe was great! Very nice relaxed atmosphere, great staff, awesome wood oven cooked pizza, very good prices, lovely staff always willing to help make your stay very enjoyable, would definitely go back again. Very safe and secure, and clean too. Lots of suggested daytrips to choose from, and drivers to hire for the day to take you wherever you like. Awesome place. Loved it.

I was at Afrovibe between Christmas and New Year's, and loved my experience there. As an American living in the Eastern Cape for the year, I was so happy to finally get to the Garden Route and Afrovibe was a great place to be situated for exploring the area for a few days. I was impressed by the super friendly staff and rooms, absolutely loved the location right on Myoli Beach, and found it a really fun vibe but also was able to relax--between braais on the pavement, chatting with other guests, and sundowners on Cloud Nine and on the beach. The bar was great, and their pizzas were among the most delicious I've had in SA! I also went paragliding in Wilderness, which the staff at Afrovibe set up for me, and which was a breathtaking, beautiful experience. Definitely wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else on this trip-- thanks Afrovibe for such an enjoyable stay.

Afrovibe is a really great spot. Close to the beach, friendly service and staff, restaurant and bar downstairs. The only real negatives that we experienced were the fact that there is no communal area to meet other travellers other than the bar (not run by the backpackers themselves) which is not too bad but would be nice to have something more social. Our other issue was that we stayed on the side faceing a holiday home. At 11pm exactly while we were talking outside our room, the neighbor started flashing their torch at us and telling us to keep quiet. This despite the fact that there is a bar downstairs blaring music until 3am. Like I said a small negative, more about the neighbours than the hostel.

Hello Chad
Thank you for the review; we are happy that you enjoyed your stay. We've recently opened the Afrovibe Beach House just down the road from the current Lodge which has more social spaces. When you visit us again we can show you :)
