Backpackers Beach House Lodge
Reviewed January 13, 2014

During our stay here, we felt extremely welcome and the staff was accommodating and happy to oblige with any questions or info we needed while we were there. They offered their Kayak and boogie board to us... no questions asked. It is Perfectly situated, has friendly staff, amazing rooms, great views and it is honestly the best backpackers I have ever stayed at.

Located right next to main beach and looking out on to the ocean. Thanks for a great stay!

Position is good although right on a busy car park. Accommodation is very white cold and not at all homely, best suited for summer months. The owner extremely aggressive and unfriendly, he's clearly in the wrong business, not at all accommodating, treats his guests like the are in the army, house rules unreasonable.

Dear Guest
My apologies regarding house rules ,It unfortunately is something that is necessary to prevent damage and disturbance to fellow guests . I do understand that the annual matric rage is for you to have fun ,but unfortunately we could not allow you to party in the room at 3 am in the morning which disturbs the guests right next door to yourselves.No smoking in the rooms is displayed through out the premises.
Trust you will understand the above .
Regards
Len

After searching the whole of Plett for affordable but safe accommodation for the annual Matrics Plett Rage, I found "Rage Heaven" as our boys renamed it! The location can not be more perfect - it is right on the beach, the facilities are run with a "firm" hand (just what our boys needed) and years of experience. The managers arranged transport to and from venues for the kids and in general, kept them in line for the week. The accommodation was clean, spacious and in very good condition. We (the parents) are definitely returning to spend some time there ourselves! I can highly recommend the Beach House as a first stop for all parents having to make arrangements for Plett Rage.

Room Tip: We booked a family unit (queen size bed + double bunks) that had a kitchenette and en-suite bathroom...

We stayed here for 3 nights in November and found the place to be excellent value. The location is perfect just on the beach and the hostel itself it clean and tidy. We were in the private room with the bathroom across the hall, although it was meant to be solely for our use we did it notice it being used by others. The room itself was superb with its own private access to the courtyard. Charles the owner is a great host and will make you feel right at home. We would recommend it to anyone visiting Plett.
