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.


very nice and helpful staff, recommended nice walk to waterfall, quiet place (not for party-seeking backpacjers), very nice room, kitchen


Very welcoming staff, not too far from the main street or waterfront, had a pleasant stay.


this place is beautiful and the staff are friendly. we enjoyed our stay here, except for the fact that our car got robbed overnight. the parking area is small and some guests are forced to park on the street leading to the backpackers. i hope this backpackers invests in a watch person overnight to prevent other cars from being robbed. our car had nothing on the seats, so no reason for robbery, aside from that, our experience here was lovely. the dog is so cute.


We stayed in the double ensuite room in March. Homebase is a great little place to base yourself for exploring Knysna. Our room was large with everything we needed. The staff were helpful and we felt save even with the car park being on the street. They have a great looking pool, which we sadly never got a chance to use... we were there too short.


Very friendly staff and a great location in knysna. Nice deck area and pool.
