Property Description

Welcome to Amakaya Backpackers & Apartments, your ‘home away from home’. We cater for the traditional type ‘backpacking’ experience and also offer our nearby Backpacker Apartments as a ‘private’ option (see separate listing).

We will make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible and help you with as much information as we can about the local activities and attractions.Here you can exchange experiences with fellow travellers and keep in touch with family and friends.

Complimentary Wi-fi is available everywhere on the property, tea and coffee is available in our kitchen.

Amakaya Backpackers: A clean, friendly and homely place where you can relax after an exhilarating day in the area. We have hot showers (electric and gas), relaxed atmosphere and comfortable beds. Sip on a drink at our upstairs bar while you relax on the veranda and take in the view of the Tsitsikamma Mountains, the lagoon and the sea.

We are a 300m walk to the shops, restaurants and bars of Plettenberg Bay’s Main Street and 800m from the popular Central Beach (beware of the steep uphill walk back that will certainly build up an appetite!).

For the ‘private’ traveller or those who want some ‘me’ time, our range of double and twin private rooms and 2 sleeper private dorm is just what you need. For those who do not mind sharing we have a selection of standard and en-suite dorms that sleep 4, 6 and 8 guests respectively.

All guests have the use of our fully-equipped kitchen facilities, free tea & coffee, free wi-fi, a sitting room to read or watch TV and an upstairs bar and braai (BBQ) with outside veranda. All our private rooms are fitted with TV sets for your convenience.

Parking is on the premises and is accessed by an electric gate.

Things to Note

No rooms will be held after 6pm unless an arrangement has been made for a late arrival.

We will pre authorize your credit card for 50% of balance due before arrival according to the cancellation policy.
Authorization means that we ask the credit card company to block an amount on your credit card (normally equal to the cancellation fee).
This amount is normally valid for a few weeks, thereafter it is automatically released back into your account (depending on the credit card company and the country). We have no control over the release process.
The hostel reserves the right to cancel a reservation if we do not get authorization on the given credit card.

Cancellation Policy

Deposit Only rates

Non-refundable rates
