    The staff at Amakaya was very helpful and friendly and the room was clean. We had free breakfast which was a bonus. Good quality for the price. The backpacker is also ideally situated, not far from shops and restaurant.

    Perfectly situated in Plett central. Comfortably beds with clean linen and sufficient facilities. We stayed in the 8 sleeper dorm which was nicely equipped with all basics. Complimentary breakfast is a refreshing bonus. Would definitely recommend

    The apartment is spacious and is safe but ultimately its very basic. There are no fans and the stove isn't too easy to use. Its really well located for night life and restaurants but less so for the beach. It was expensive for what it...More
