A pleasant enough place to stay down by a small beach, we felt safe and staff were always happy to help. Our dorm room and bathroom were clean, and the bar area was nice for a drink or two. We were disappointed with the self catering facilities, with the kitchen feeling unclean. The hostel is at the bottom of a...

The pool was filthy and unusable and it was like that the full five days and apparently had been like that before we arrived. There was a dangerous broken step, plugs and lights didn't work. We won't be staying there again in that neglected condition.

The accommodation was clean, the staff was very friendly and i felt very save and at home staying there. The view from the...

This place was incredible. The location was absolutely perfect- right on the beach! I had my own beautiful room that faced the ocean and fell asleep to the crashing waves and had one of the best sleeps of my whole trip in South Africa. My stay was wonderful, the staff was super helpful with helping me plan my days there....

Stayed in the "Bliss". Stunning room with super comfy bed. Room was very clean and has nice view of Hobie beach. We enjoyed an evening at their bistro and bar. Mussel pot and camembert wedges are delicious. Friendly staff. Will go back anyday!

We stayed here with a group of friends for two nights. The location is great, right next to the beach, but we did not really like the atmosphere in the hostel - it was not very welcoming and you didn't get the backpackers vibe. We did have a nice braai the second night and the cleaning ladies were really nice,...

Very neat and clean; the friendly staff ads to a homely atmosphere. Relaxed environment, prime location. I would certainly stay over when I am in Plet again and definitely recommend to others. A pity I was only passing through this time around.

The lodge was very nice, the room clean and the staff was very very nice. I wonder if it is not mentioned in the description is free wifi throughout the property available and you can get freshly cooked breakfast for 35 ZAR per person. We can only recommend it!

“"Room with a view" is spacious and has a cute view, but bear in mind it has a shared bathroom across the hall, and is right on the shared patio, so is only private if you keep the curtains closed.”
