Welcome to Amakaya Backpackers & Apartments, your 'home away from home.' Amakaya Backpackers is not perfect, however is a clean, friendly, homely place with hot showers (electric and gas), relaxed atmosphere and comfortable beds. Only a 300m walk to the shops, restaurants and bars Main Street and 800m from the popular Central Beach (beware of the steep uphill walk back that will certainly build up an appetite and thirst!). For the 'private' traveller or those who want some 'me' time, our range of double and twin private rooms (each with its own TV and hospitiality fridge) and 2 sleeper private dorm is just what you need. For those who do not mind sharing we have a selection of standard and en-suite dorms that sleep 2, 4, and 8 guests respectively. Our Backpacker Apartments is situated 200m away near the transport hub of Plett. Stay in a private or one of our dorm apartments. Each apartment has a kitchen, bathroom, satellite TV and wi-fi. Only 100m from Main Street.

Wonderful long weekend stay with family in the Tradouw chalet. Enjoyed a family braai and sundowners, chatting in the common area/balcony area of the backpackers. Very clean and a stones throw from the main road of town !! Thank you Dave !

The place was safe and peaceful. I loved the fact that there was cups and plates, although it is self-catering. I would just like to say thank you. We will definitely make use of your services again..

Good stay over for a Tired body. Affordable and close Center of town. With Plettenberg Baai and surroundings areas this can be a good base camp. Some of ammintities can be upgraded and some area needs a bit of touch up. But overall great stay. Will definitely look at staying longer next time...
