Lovely place to stay!! Staff were all lovely and very happy to offer any advice on what to do in the area. Only a 5 minute walk to the waterfront and about 10 minutes to town so perfectly situated. Breakfast of toast, eggs and fruit was included which is always a bonus. If you're looking for a comfy and friendly place to stay, this is it!

I was not impressed with the receptionists Lisa way of welcoming us and tidying up Breakfast at exactly on the hour. I enjoyed my stay because of the fellow occupants but not the staff. The backpackers is great but poor service

A lovely little place really near the waterfront in Knysna, the room was for 3 people but I had it to myself which was fortunate as there are no lockers to put your valuables into, also the room was quite away from the bathroom/toilet and I had to walk through the kitchen and lounge to get to it. That said however, the staff were really helpful and friendly and I would stay again but would ask for a room inside the house, not off the garden which is where I was.

The place is great !! The staff was extremely helpful, we had a problem with our bus (it never came) and the only people that actualy gave us a solution were the staff at Jembjo's. The rooms are really clean and tidy, beds are comfortable, the bathrooms also very clean. Breakfast was great as well.
