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

It is a hostel so the furnishings are not fancy or new but in all other respects this is a great place to stay. The staff was very helpful even to the point of finding us a recipe so we could make potjie. The view from the veranda is terrific. More

The location of this hostel is pretty cool! You have a view over the forest, the lagoon of Plettenberg Bay and also over the sea. There are many places to sit outside and also fire places. It's really worth a stay! More

Is in a nice area in the middle of the forest with a waterfall walk within the grounds however there is nothing else around and can only really be accessed if you have a car or by the BazBus. The atmosphere seems lively on a night however there is a very strong hippie vibe which is great 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
