We booked a room for 8,When we arrived there, they gave us a small room with no wardrobe.when we asked for a bigger room,they told us the rooms were fully booked and its not their problem we booked a dom room(what kind of an answer is that )The bedroom linen is so old that it itches on the body ,the walls need major painting. the attitude we got from the receptionist(Olivia)stinks,There is no full disclosure from the internet(I LOOKED AT THE PICTURES TODAY AGAIN AND I CANT FIND THE ROOM WE WERE BOOKED ON OVER THE WEEKEND, PLEASE UPDATE)I don't recommend anyone to go there unless you have a Tyre punch or desperate for a room to crush on.

Amakaya is clean and comfortable with a reasonable supply of equipment in the kitchen. There was some noise from the road and voices did channel up the stairs, but no great problem. It is close to the town centre and beaches.
A wonderful place!

Comfortable, lovely place. It was great to chat on the couch by the fire or while enjoying the sunshine. Everybody was interesting and nice ! The place is in the city center of this beautiful city. The rooms were comfortable, clean and pretty.

We stayed for two nights with three adults and three students. Mary and David were very helpful in telling us all about Plett and surroundings.
Great stay

Amakaya Backpackers
Amakaya Backpackers and self-catering accommodation is situated 300 m from Main Street in Plettenberg Bay. This is where you will find numerous shops, restaurants, pubs and an open-air market. A few hundred metres further down the road is the popular Central Beach.

After a day's activities it is time to visit our upstairs bar and open-air verandah. From here you can view the magnificent Tsitsikamma Mountains and the bay while you relax with an evening barbecue at one of our two braai areas.

Our Adventure Centre can help you plan your activities in the Garden Route during your stay with us. Transport can be arranged to any of the sights you wish to see. Various tours are also available and you can even plan your own personalized tour.
