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.

Here is a list of things we didn't like : - No welcome ("look at your email inbox") and no one showing us the place at our arrival - No hot water in the shower - Smoking area just behind our windows (cigarette's odor in our room) - (more personal : cold atmospher) In our opinion, the rating seen on the internet (4/5) doesn't fit the reality.

Great room to stay in while walking through Plettenberg Bay as its was close to the centre of town and a great beach down the road. They were very accommodating and let us leave our bags there during the day so we could walk around.

I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the unit for a family, Although we checked in after hours, Debbie arrived to ensure that we were settled and happy. The only negative to mention is that our DSTV was not working and the fan in the room was not working, (We did not get a chance to tell Debbie).

The accommodation serves the intended purpose of having a place to clean up after a hard days work, get something to eat nearby and lay ones weary head for a nights rest. Would certainly recommend within the industry.
