Reviews for Amakaya Backpackers Travellers Accommodation
Simple but nice
Friendly and helpful staff, nice accomadation, close to the beach.
Amakaya Backpackers is best for solo travellers or budget travellers in a group of 4-5 in Plettenburg Bay. The staff is very decent and cooperating. Jason is the man for your every needs, just give him a job and he will do it. Tip him nice!
Except for the fact that they do not allow the guests to bring outside booze and drink in their premises, and that their bar shuts at 10pm, we had a lovely experience staying here. The people who work here are very polite and helpful, they even got us a 10% discount for our Bloukrans bungee experience. The kitchen and the form were spotlessly clean. The WiFi worked well, there were a lot of free informative guides, brochures and posters put up around everywhere that mentioned all the activities you could be doing in and around Plettenberg bay. The beach and the supermarket are both at a walking distance.We would love to stay here again.
The prices are awesome as well as the people are so friendly
Adequate for a couple of nights and it is close to the high street.
incredible stay at Amakaya Backpackers, We stayed in the family room and it was beautiful, big and spacious with an en suite bathroom and huge balcony. basically we had an apartment which was really cool :) the staff is great and the backpackers is located close to a number of must do activities like Africanyon, Monkey Land, The Elephant Park etc.
