Good place to stay and to meet others. The staff is very nice and helpful.
The staff were extremely helpful with organising activities for me, it also had prime location being round the corner from the main strip and a short walk to the beach. Overall it wasn't very busy though and that made the stay not as enjoyable as it could have been
Good little hostel to relax at. Staff really made the place excellent. Beds are clean and the kitchen has everything you need.
I would not recommend Amakaya Backpackers on first sight. Mine and my brothers beds werent clean. They smelled and there was hair on the pillows. It seemned as if the pillowcased werent even changed. Everything didnt look that tidied and cleaned up. Friends of mine, they had stayed in another Dorm one night ealier. One of them was stolen 500 Rand because of a man who took the chance when the gate was open to sneak into the Dorm. At least the staff payed her back the money.
Great backpackers with exceptionally friendly staff despite some having a strange affiliation with the New Zealand Rugby team over the Boks. Great location as well with Main Street and a checkers within easy walking distance.
