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.
