About

Traditional backpacker accommodation comprises shared dormitories or rooms and shared bathrooms - along with shared cooking and bar facilities.

FunkyTown however is what's termed a Flashpacker establishment and entitles the guest to their own bedroom with bathroom en suite. The shared socialising facilities remain, so guests can still socialise with other guests in the kitchen, bar and TV areas.

Flashpackers also provide more comfortable accommodation, not only in space, but in bedding and trendy room accessories. Flashpacker establishments also provide a harmonious, yet trendy, environment and are sometimes referred to as Art Hotels.

At FunkyTown there are no age restraints. All they would like is for those travelling to mix with fellow guests and learn about other cultures and countries.

When hotelier James Hinton took over this landmark backpacker property in 2012, he brought with it his love for pop art and a clear vision of being able to offer travelers; spacious, creative, spotless and good value accommodation.

The result is a gallery of James' love of pop culture, advertising and his childhood obsession with comic books. The interiors are done in muted, neutral colours with splashes of brightness from lighting, art works, walls and furniture.

Guests regularly report back that staying in FunkyTown is like being part of an art exhibition.

But creative expression has not overshadowed the necessity for comfort and luxury.

Every room has been uniquely decorated and has its own en-suite bathroom, with all the beds hotel quality and dressed in clean crisp linen.

The communal areas are perfect to meet fellow travelers and visiting locals. Relax, pore yourself a drink and take in the vibrant atmosphere of Jeffreys Bay.
