A good place to stay in Knysna! Staff is incredibly nice and helpful when it comes to organise activities. The hostel dog is really cute ;-) The hostel is located on a hill a little bit outside of the town centre (10 min walk to waterfront, 5min to main road). just next to a nature reserve. Unfortunately, they do not have a hostel bar, but the area is safe to walk, even at night and the town centre is not far away. The hostel is well maintained, however, bathrooms could be cleaner...


Very nice facility but it's up on a steep hill and a little off the main road, so it's a bit difficult to find. The staff is great and their three dogs are sweet.


Had a nice stay. You can reach the waterfront in 10 minutes and the main street in 5. Even though the rooms are quite sensitive, they are comfortable.
