    What a beautiful hostel! The outdoor seating area is amazing, and I loved the evening fire. Easy walking to everything in Plett, including beaches. At the time I stayed (low season), I was the only guest, but I imagine during high season, the atmosphere here is wonderful. Definitely would stay again.

    I only had a very short stay at Albergo but it was good. They have all the facilities you would need in a hostel and everything is clean. The staff was super friendly with helping decide on what to do and booking shuttles and they have a great garden area that is fantastic to relax after a hike. The only thing I could think of is that the form was a little cramped and the bottom bunks were very small. WiFi worked most times but you need to log in every time you had to log in new. No breakfast.

    Nice hostel and good facilities, although Port Elizabeth itself is a little quiet at this time of year. Really enjoyed the sandboarding, which the hostel arranged for us.

    Heel leuk hostel. Enorm chille tuin met elke avond haardvuur. Echter lekten alle kranen en was er wat achterstallig onderhoud.

    Very pleasant stay! Absolutely loved the fireplace in the garden (also used for braai) and the towels supplied! As well lovely staff, very helpful! only negative is that we found the hostel quite noisy; our room was next to the kitchen... which meant noise both in the evening and in the morning unfortunately

    The place has a lot of potential few things weren't totally right. They didn't have enough towel so my friend and I had to share. We had dinner there and the food was good but they ran out of salad before everyone could get some. And it's not clearly specify there are some cats and dogs as well.
