The hostel was quite quiet when we visited in late January. The breakfast was good and the dorm was good. The place was nice for relaxing with a few hammocks and a good bar. If you want to relax, I would recommend it. The town of Plettenburg is quite quiet as well but the beach was nice More

The location is great. We had booked 4 nights with 5 guys. The appartement building is like 200 meters from the hostel, please keep this in mind during the booking. In the hostel there is a bar. The bar was opened every day, but we had to ask a lot if someone could help us. More
