"Plett Backpackers"

I did not enjoy my stay at Plett Backpackers. In fact I left the same afternoon when I arrived to find alternative accommodation. Maybe it is not the place to stay if you are my age with teens. The pictures on the web are also not reflecting the true status of the place. The sad about it is that since I left there the afternoon of the 12 of December 2010 until today nobody had the decency to contact me or came to a solution to refund me.

"Matric vacation"

Plett Backpackers was the ideal place to stay. Our pals envied us. We were part of the vibe - close to everything. Thank you.
