Albergo for Backpackers is situated in the most amazing spot in Plettenberg Bay. The beach, shops, restaurants and nightlife are all within easy walking distance. Nothing can beat our stunning views from the balcony where dolphins and whales are often spotted cruising the beautiful bay of Plettenberg Bay.

We make a bonfire every night. Here we will teach you to master the art of a traditional South African outdoor braai. Our television room, with its satellite TV for movie and sport addicts, bar and pool table are located away from the sleeping areas.

At Albergo’s One Stop Action Shop we offer information about all the activities in the area. A shuttle service is available for transport to the various activities.

Plettenberg Bay has the most gorgeous beaches, and idyllic surf spots. We have surfboards for hire and body boards available for free. Then come back to relax in our huge garden with its swinging hammocks and luscious green grass.

We run our own Internet Cafe with a fast ADSL connection, Wi-Fi, VOIP, Webcams and much more.

This is a place where nature does all the entertaining; beautiful, a little wild, natural and peaceful. Our retreat-styled eco lodge nestles on the forest edge and abounds with creativity.

You can choose to stay in little woodcutter cottages that were once stables for our friendly horses or in a spacious converted barn, ideal for family gatherings and retreats, plus a quaint double-storey cottage among a glade of trees that oozes magical charm.

For the more adventurous nature-lover or the eco green conscious traveller, there are simply furnished forest-safari style tents on timber decks in the forest with rustic communal timber huts housing a kitchen and ablution facilities.

While you are here, you can go for early morning walks meandering along winding mossy pathways in our ancient forest where you will hear the rustle of leaves as monkeys scamper along the tops of the trees. You can also have a lazy afternoon with a book at the lotus lily pond set in our park-like gardens alive with bird songs. While dozing under an azure-blue sky you may see the shy emerald green Knysna loerie fly by, and at sunset you can stroll along to our organic vegetable garden to pick some greens for a healthy meal under a starry African night sky.

If you love nature and want to experience a more natural eco environment and don’t need luxuries to enjoy your stay, then you will find Peace of Eden enchanting.

We also have a recording studio where many well-known South African musicians have recorded their award-winning albums, and you may just be lucky enough to be visiting when we have impromptu sunset soiree evenings where you could be entertained by some of our great singers and song-writer guitarists like Nate Maingard, Gary Thomas and blues maestro Dan Patlansky.

We are 15 minutes from Knysna and only 8 km from the N2, on the pretty country road that leads to the Rheenendal village. Beyond the village is a turn-off to the Goudveld Forests, Jubilee Creek, and the historical Millwood Goldmines where you may come across signs of the illusive Knysna elephants that still roam freely in the depths of the vast mysterious Knysna forests.

Our beautiful white, sandy beaches of Buffalo Bay and Brenton on Sea and the Knysna river estuary are a mere ten minute drive away and we are an hour's drive from most of the famous attractions and adventure activities of the Garden Route. The Garden Route it now a national park and one of the safest and most beautiful places in South Africa.

If you are just passing through we are a perfect stopover en route to Addo National Park, the Eastern Cape coastline and the Wild Coast. We have a registered nature guide and offer guided forest and bird walks, township and Knysna tours, and go as far afield as Addo Elephant National Park.

Where the booming breakers of the Indian Ocean relentlessly pound rocky shores, where temperate high forest and fynbos roll down to the sea in an unspoilt verdant carpet, where ancient rivers carve their paths to the ocean down rocky ravines. This "the place of much water", is the Tsitsikamma National Park. The heartland of the park stretches some 5 km to sea, protecting a wonderland of inter-tidal life, reef and deep-sea fish. Dolphins frolic in the breakers, surfing and playing for the sheer joy of life, and the gentle giant of the ocean, the southern right whale visits here, coming inshore to breed. Please note that the rates displayed are for two/four guests and that the rates are subject to the number of guests as well as children staying, hence we advise guests to request the appropriate tariffs.
