I really enjoyed our stay at Jacobs Bay Backpackers. Everything I needed was there and plenty of shady places to braai. It was clean and not noisy with friendly people. It is well situated along the West Coast

Last minute booking for the long weekend. What a surprise!
Jacobs Bay is not only beautiful but so conveniently located for travelling to other places along the west coast.
The backpackers is beautifully maintained, the staff are super accommodating, caring and friendly. The rooms are basic and clean, the shower facilities and bathrooms are well maintained. They are many communal braai areas and a shared communal kitchen that is well stocked. Bring your own glasses and sharp knives if needed.
I will definitely return for the very affordable and homey feel the Plot has to offer!

Our stay was awesome. All amenities were clean and we loved the whole ambiance of this place. The owner and her son are two amazing people and our group will be going back there some time in the future.
Thanks

Jacobsbaai is such a beautiful little town. It was exactly what we need to unwind. It is not too far from Cape Town and the spring flowers were amazing.
