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.

The room was not so clean. There were a lot of ants in the room. The shower area was also dirty. Ash in the sink and on the floor. The communication also went a little wrong. The location was good, near the beach and restaurants.

I can't understand where the people who have given bad reviews were staying! The lady who booked us in at lunchtime and the guy who was there to greet us when we returned to our room later in the evening were extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and even had aircon, tv and a bar fridge. The communal kitchen is well stocked and there's a large fridge for use by the residents. Also nice comfy sofas in the communal living area. Only downside was the aircon unit in our room which didn't seem to be working well as our room didn't seem to cool down very much. If staying in Plett, we would definitely stay at Amakaya
