I spent four days in Plett, and the staff of Albergo was very good with me. A nice, cozy place, great for making braai or asado in the evenings. Really close to main street, and not so far from the beach (but Plett has too many up and downs, so it takes a while to reach the beach), the best... More

We pitched our tent in the garden. There is a lovely living room with tables, there is a fire place, free coffee and tee. The garden is nice and the staff was very friendly. Location was good. We really had a nice stay there.

Great location, situated right in the centre of Plettenberg Bay. From our 6bed dorm you could see the ocean and enjoy the sunrise from bed. Kitchen properly equipped, unlike all other hostels I had seen that far. Cozy and comfortable lounge area, clean and nicely decorated rooms, hot showers. Nothing else we could have wished for!

I stayed here for two nights, it felt very much like home, with a roaring fire and music playing. The common area was great, free tea and coffee and wifi, there was an honesty bar, and the campfire was lit each night for BBQ if you provided your own food, also the kitchen was well equipped. The staff (and owners)... More

Albergo is right in the middle of gorgeous Plett, right next to shops and bars on the main road and a Checkers. The backpackers has a lovely garden, great self-catering kitchen, and acceptable bathrooms and dorms. I found the staff to be very friendly and approachable, and I appreciated the racial diversity represented (a rarity on the Garden Route). I... More

As backpackers go, this one is lovely - well situated, great staff, good accommodation and facilities, and a wonderful garden. However, as an older person traveling with kids, our stay was wrecked by a large group of young and clearly drunk 'guests' who decided to 'party' well after midnight, which included raiding the communal kitchen for whatever food they could...

Good facilities, very clean, nice indoor and outdoor areas, helpful staff. Close to town, beaches not too far away. However, this is not a place to pitch a tent in high season. Very squeezed in space. Very noisy at night during high season with a lot of out of control drunk young people. Book well in advance during this period... More

Stayed just 1 night. Took a dorm room for just R120. Bunk was very comfortable though I would recommend the upper bunk as there is limited space between the low and upper bunks, but the upper bunk is not too high up and there is plenty of space between it and the ceiling. The rooms are comfortably decorated with no... More

The staff at albergo were amazing, always willing to help with information, booking trips and hostels. Private rooms were spacious and clean. Our Bathroom did smell funky and the hot water tended to keep switching from cold to hot during showers, but overall we enjoyed our stay.
