I had a memorable stay at Nothando Backpackers Lodge. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Dinner was a typical South African braai and is highly recommended. Will most definitely be back, but for longer.

Excellent rating overall. Accommodation with outstanding qualities. We were absolute amazed with white linen at a backpackers lodge! Secure parking was also a blessing! Will definitely come back!! We also appreciated the fact that we could dry our wet hiking gear and clothes at the washing line area.

We had a pleasant stay at Nothando. The check-in was good, the room spacious and clean and so was the bathroom. They have a bar with sat-TV. It's run by a super nice guy (thanks for showing Bayern Munich vs. Real Madrid!). Would book again!

I arrived unexpectedly late but was still warmly greeted. Good suggestions for restaurants and activities were provided (even at that late hour). The room was clean, the bed comfy and facilities all worked well. I just couldn't find the light switch for the bathroom so it stayed on all night! Good location and as a solo traveller, felt nice and...

Nothando Backpackers in Plettenber Bay is ideal for a familt stop over with plenty of rooms which are roomy, en suite and clean. The staff are very welcoming and were able to cater for all our requirements - we were a group of 9 and nothing was too much bother. The bar is cozy and decked out in a typical...

Wonderful spacious rooms at a budget price but not budget standard. Clean with good bathroom facilities. Good security. Bar and seating area. 100% recommend this accommodation. Go stay there if you are visiting Plettenberg Bay

The place was perfect for our needs. The room was spacious and equiped with coffee/tea facilities, very clean, bed was very confortable. Also, the location is good, although the way to the nearest beach has a slope, it's like a 15min walk.

Booked for one night at the backpackers. The room was perfect, super clean and the staff were lovely. The place offered off road parking, brilliant wi-fi and it was very secure. Would most definitely recommend Nothando to anyone staying in Plett. Nearby restaurants, shops and bars and just a short walk away from the beach.
