As popular as ever, Amakaya means 'home', so move in and make yourself at home! A short 300m stroll gets you to Main Street, the hub of Plett's shops, restaurants and nightlife.

However, if 'life's a beach' then wind your way past Main Street down to the ever popular Central Beach.

We offer a variety of private rooms and dorms with both shared and en-suite bathrooms.

Our upstairs bar and open air veranda offers a magnificent view of the Tsitsikamma mountain range, the ocean and the bay. This is a great place to relax after a busy day or to watch the sunrise.

At night you can swop stories of your adventures while sitting around the bonfire or lazing in one of our hammocks.

Free internet is available and our WiFi connection is available anywhere on the property.

....or just lose yourself in our lounge watching one of the satellite TV channels.

Should you wish to show off your culinary skills to the other guests you are welcome to take charge of our fully equipped kitchen.

    Great place to stay but set back from town more than we expected. Still not to far to walk down to town or Central Beach but steep hills coming back. OK if you are fit or have no disability. Very clean facility with helpful signage and staff. Only bad factor that twin room was located next to two toilets and kitchen and thus noise issues from other guests could be problematic.. Taxi booked through hostel seemed a tad expensive.
