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 was there at the start of the off season, so it was a bit quieter. I would recommend Albergo to anyone.
