It is mostly a chalet style hotel, with only 2 rooms dedicated as dorms, so if you're expecting a hostel atmosphere this isn't exactly the place. However, it is neat and clean, has a great self catered kitchen, as well as a lovely lounge. Staff, as usual in SA, go out of their way. A pleasant stay, overall. Just don't expect to make any new friends...


Very clean and staff all friendly , and breakfast lovely . Had great time there and would stay there again .


Good place to stay, I liked the dorm room.


The best backpackers I have stayed in South Africa so far! Very clean and comfortable!


I just love this hostel. The staff are incredibly helpful and nice, the rooms are clean, beds comfortable, you get towels, which was lovely, and the facilities and breakfast are very good. It is a little walk to the beach but Plett is a lovely town to wander through with lots of shops and great restaurants very close by. I would highly recommend!
