It doesn’t matter from which direction you travel. On the N2 you will see a big traffic circle (at the Shell Ultra petrol station). Follow the “Plettenberg Bay Centre” signs. At the roundabout with dolphin statue (on Marine way), you turn left into Main Street. Take the 3rd street to the left into Church Street. Drive up the hill and you will see the Albergo for Backpackers sign after 25 meters on your right hand side.
