The location is central and secure. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The dinner and breakfast options on site are great. Rooms were cleaned everyday and kitted out with all you need. Will go again and highly recommended.

The girlfriend and I went on an impromptu road trip without having secured a place to stay. And in our adventure we had decided to stay over in Knynsa to break our drive from DBN to CPT. Nothando BP were prompt in our inquiry, which was 3hrs before our estimated arrival time. We arrived in time for a rugby match... More

I had a good time at Nothando's, but the dorm was really small, simple and not really cosy. Apart from that - the staff is very friendly, the hostel is very central ( only the beach is a bit far), and it's affordable.

The rooms are decent size and very clean. The entire place has a clean feel even the bar the bar has many sofas and many drinks available as well as board games. The staff is super cool and the area is safe at night for wandering to other places. The off season made the stay very quiet.

Thanks to TripAdvisor, I found Nothando Backpackers and after reading all the reviews booked a couple of nights for Hubby and I just after the New Year's weekend this year. We arrived at an awkward time, and Maryna happily opened up for us so we could rest after a long journey on the Greyhound from Cape Town. The friendly staff... More

We enjoyed our time at Backpackers. We felt that it provided fantastic value in Plett. They had helpful staff and we felt very safe. While it was within walkable distance to dining the streets in this area were dark and close to combi pick-up areas.
