This is a great little place with fantastic staff! Many thanks to Elvis for helpng to arrange my onward travel!! I was there in the "off" season, so it was a little quiet, but you can tell it'd be great fun in the busier times. The location is great - a very short walk into town, a nice walk down to the beaches, and right near a minibus stand for travel to neighbouring areas. (I highly recommend a restaurant called Table for pizza - delicious!!)
A nice place for chilling out and relaxing. Cozy dorms, good kitchen and a great outdoor area and bar. The staff is helpful and friendly. Most of people I met there were couples travelling the Garden Route - so if you´re a party animal, Nothando might not be the place for you. Anyways, I would definitely reccomend this place.
Elvis and Estefani are a great staff, the place is fantastic is very quite and relaxing, wuth hamacas to ly on and read, a bar and their special dinner is great!!!
Amazing hostel with some amazing staff members. Even though the hostel wasn't very busy, there were still plenty of people to have a conversation with. Elvis and Stephanie deserve a special mention for their tireless work and kindness to every guest.
Elvis and Stefanie were so friendly and helpful, as was the nice lady at the reception, whose name i can't remember (Sorry!). Very quiet and relaxed place. Helpful staff.
Staff made the place. I stayed here in march and Elvis even arranged for me to be picked up from the bus station at 2am. the staff are amazing. thanks for the stay guys :)
Very nice, more like a bungalow hotel than hostel. Nice, helpfull staff too, not the typical south african lackiness
Some rooms have very small double beds.

Best Hostel on our trip from PE to CPT!
The staff were welcoming & helpful, location is great, Sweetness' cooking is a MUST try, Steph thanks for the music & great company in the evenings. Our group really loved our time at Nothando & we'll recommend it to anyone passing your way. Just wish we were still there.

What a great place to stay! We were at Nothando's for 5 nights and it really felt like a home away from home. The double ensuite room is nice and clean. The kitchen is big and has everything you need to prepare a good meal. There is even a braai there if you want to use it. The living room is very cosy. And the staff very helpfull and friendly. Location is also perfect. Very good budget option in Plettenberg Bay!
