This was a gorgeous place to stay - very clean and decorated creatively. The staff were very friendly and there is lots of space to sit inside by the fire or outside on the hammocks. You can also cook your own braii on the fire outside or buy a drink from the bar. It's right by Plett High Street and... More

This it the most perfectly located-warm-worth every penny- hostel. The staff is excellent, the amenities are by far the best I've had in a hostel in SA. It's such a vibrant place to be in while traveling. Had the best three nights in Plett coz of Albergo. Must visit this place when in Plett.

We stayed at the Albergo for one night only and were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful garden and nice little bar with affordable prices. The rooms and sanitary facilities are very clean! The interior is simple but does the job just fine. If you look for a nice accomodation this is more than your average backpackers.

We were absolutely exhausted when we arrived at Albergo and I was so not keen to have to try and sleep through noise, hustle and bustle in a possibly dingy room that can be typical of budget travel/backpacking. Instead, we were greeted by lovely staff who showed us around the backpackers, (free tea and coffee, bar, beautiful garden and told... More

This could have been a perfect one night stopover as the hostel is small and cosy with very comfortable beds. However, my stay was spoiled by other inconsiderate guests who created a lot of noise by shouting and thumping about late into the night. Perhaps management could put up a few signs imploring quietness.

This is one of the best backpackers I have had the pleasure to visit. The grounds and rooms are extremely neat and well kept, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the vibe is fantastic. We stayed for 3 nights and had a blast, and the prices are extremely reasonable. Our room had a bunk bed and a double... More

This backpackers has a beautifully decorated backyard area, for hanging out or just relaxing alone in their swinging chairs. They also have a great little living room area with free tea and coffee. Our rooms and beds were clean and they provide a towel for your stay. The bathrooms were clean, but I really think they should have more toilets,... More

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.
