Jungle Monkey Backpackers in Port St Johns

Jungle Monkey is situated in the rugged and untouched heart of the Wild Coast, in South Africa’s Eastern Cape. Here, we are still impressed by what nature brings forth patiently and by the result of its rejuvenation. Port St. Johns is home to many rare species. Watch the parrots or go on a boat trip to see whales and dolphins during the sardine run.

The stunning views and tranquil surroundings invite to go exploring. Stroll through the traditional Pondo villages or climb the rolling hills with our guides. We offer light hikes as well as adventurous full day trips.

Enjoy a therapeutic massage and have a swim in our pools, sleep in our comfortable doubles, triples, the safari tent, dormitories or camp in the garden.

Our restaurant offers a broad selection of hearty meals and the vibey bar invites to settle down after an adventurous day. Enjoy regular live performances by local artists or jam together on our fully equipped band stand. Use our instruments or bring your own.

Just remember when the Pondo Fever strikes, you might never want to leave again.

First time coming Port St John's and staying here. The town was absolutely filthy and the beach was strewn with litter. Was disgusting and upsetting :(The accommodation was alright. Paid for a room and the view was amazing but there was no hot water and no towels to use. The have a bar facility with pool table, 2 x pools with a lounge to relax in.Overall,it was a welcoming stay but missed the small eassentials such a hot water and a towel in the room. It's located near the 1st beach, and close to the shops, but even coming from Kzn we were too scared to go shopping as the area was manic with so many people that we just used what we had left. This used to be a small, quiet, clean town but now is busy, dirty and very noisy. Most upset about the dirty surroundings though.

This place was more a very loud African people (not guest) party centre with a lot of drunk driving, than a hostel. Staff was not really friendly, facilities were unclean and worn out.

Great place to stay. Friday eve was very noisy till 1pm but then what can one expect during Christmas holiday season. Rooms at the back of the complex much quieter. Love the variety of rooms on offers. Privet rooms + dorms. Price very reasonable. Owner Pappa G and staff all very accommodating. Recommended.
