Welcome to Amakaya Backpackers & Apartments, your 'home away from home'.
We cater for the traditional type 'backpacking' experience and also offer our nearby Backpacker Apartments (200m away) as a 'private' option.
We will make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible and help you with as much information as we can about the local activities and attractions. Here you can exchange experiences with fellow travellers and keep in touch with family and friends.
Our rates include free Wi-Fi, internet facilities and free coffee and tea at both Amakaya Backpackers and Amakaya Backpacker Apartments.
A clean, friendly and homely place where you can relax after an exhilarating day in the area. We have hot showers (electric and gas), relaxed atmosphere, comfortable beds and a good breakfast on offer. Sip on a drink at our upstairs bar while you relax on the veranda and take in the view of the Tsitsikamma Mountains, the lagoon and the sea.
We are a 300m walk to the shops, restaurants and bars of Plettenberg Bay's Main Street and 800m from the popular Central Beach (beware of the steep uphill walk back that will certainly build up an appetite!).
For the 'private' traveller or those who want some 'me' time, our range of double and twin private rooms and 2 sleeper private dorms are just what you need. For those who do not mind sharing we have a selection of standard and en-suite dorms that sleep 4, 6, and 8 guests respectively.
All guests have the use of our fully-equipped kitchen facilities, wi-fi, a sitting room to read or watch TV/DVDs and an upstairs bar with outside veranda.
Parking is on the premises and is accessed by an electric gate.
