Backpackers Beach House Lodge
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Everything that the other reviews say about Backpackers Beach House Lodge is true! The location is excellent and the staff are charming and very helpful.

There were just a couple drawbacks. We stayed in the private flat. The kitchen wasn't really stocked as if people were really going to cook there. It lacked dish soap for doing dishes, a frying pan, a coffee maker, etc. The bathroom was also very much like a backpackers in terms of cleanliness and less like the beautiful accommodations that were otherwise in the flat. With those considerations in mind, I can't recommend this place enough!

The value far exceeds the price. Best bet would be to go for the Room with a View. Also, try to have a braai while you there, the setup is perfect.
Management are very helpful and friendly, and makes you feel that you can ask for any assistance without hesitation.

We were a group of teenagers weren't looking for something to expensive on the beach front, close by to everything just one disadvantage is as of June 2013 they didn't have WiFi in the lodge but he said that it will be coming within a month, great service there are three rooms one room has place for 6 people on bunk beds (which has a bath room inside) the other two rooms have a master bed, we had a great time, next time we come to plet we will for sure go back.

Three mates and myself arrived early on Saturday monring and weregreeted by Charles at the front desk who extended a warm welcome to us. We enjoyed a clean and neat sleeping area, safe places to leave our valuables and a working kitchen and fridge tokeep our groceries in. The pool, braai and bonfire facilites provided much entertinament and allowed us to enjoy a really good vibe!

This is definitely the most upmarket and well run backpackers we have stayed in and definitely will be returning! The staff are super friendly and accommodating and I would highly recommend this spot to anyone!

Amazing spur of the moment surf trip up to plett, found a cool looking back backpackesr with a cheap rate, to be honest wasnt holding only to any hope of what we actually experienced. In marketing satisfaction is defined as the difference between expectation and experience - my word were we more than satisfied! Charles the man who looks after the place was maybe the most hospitable host i have ever had the pleasure of meeting, went out of his way to make sure our stay was amazing. The location and actual beach house is beyond insane, cant imagine chilling in this spot in summer! The fire pit is awesome and the place is spotlessly clean, you know this when you cant even find sand in a BEACH house! Cant stop smiling from one of the best weekends away we have ever had! So so so much stoke! Thank you so much again for having us!

Room Tip: dorm rooms are a budget option, not the most comfortable matresses in the world but thats what you e...

Amazingly helpful and knowledgeable management and staff.
This converted beach house has amazing views and impeccably clean rooms and facilities. Easy to find from town but the only one of its kind located right on the beach. Think VIP accommodations for affordable prices.
We enjoyed our breakfast on the deck overlooking the sun rise & the whales swimming on by.

Beach House Backpackers will take care of you from recommendations of restaurants to potential discounts on local touristy attractions. Staff has a lot of experience in the tourism business which also comes with connections!

Our favorite stay on the Garden Route!!!

Room Tip: Dorms are great and affordable! If you can- GO FOR THE SUITE! Worth every rand ;)
