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 views from this hostel are beautiful. We stayed in a dorm room as there was no private room available and it wasnt to our liking so checked out early but there was nothing wrong with it. Unfortunately the long driveway to the hostel is in very poor repair with large dangerous pot holes More

The hostel is on an unpaved road uphill very hard to reach when it rains on a small car, specially after dark. We booked ensuite and got a shared shower with no hot water that was quite dirty. There were 2 other families staying there and they were terribly loud, and our room was right More

I can't say enough good things about this place. The staff are amazing. The live music, amazing. The homemade food makes me want to cry it's so good. And don't even get me started on dessert. I met someone that packed up his whole life and moved there and I suggest you do the same. 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
