    This hostel has great vibes and friendly people. They do a lot to let you know what there is to do in the area and are anxious to help however they can. I found the environment to be very friendly and it was also a frequent hangout for locals, which I think is great for a hostel! Come find the wilderness in Wilderness!

    Great spot for nature lovers! Super convenient location for easy access to the river, forests and mountain. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The facilities are homey and neat. They shared kitchen is well-equipped. Whilst bedding is provided in dorm rooms, I'd suggest taking your own. Looking forward to returning many more times!

    Lovely place to relax with gorgeous gardens. Beds were comfy and rooms clean. Lovely staff. Kitchen a bit far from our cottage and no swimming pool. But would definitely stay there again with whole family

    Located right near a river for swimming and kayaking, a bit away from town or the beach (you’ll need a car). No frills dorm room, as in zero extras in the room other than sheets and a pillow. Great staff and a cheap onsite bar that usually has a good crowd to meet people. Didn’t eat here but they offer breakfast, dinner, and other snacks for extra. Place is a bit dated but clean for the most part.

    Very Good

    31 Dec 2019
    Fairy Knowe has a beautiful setting a walk away from the main hustle & bustle of wilderness. The rooms were extremely clean (we stayed in the twin room for one night and then the double en-suite for two nights). The main house has the kitchen which is shared by the dorms, all self catering units and the campsite and is extremely small for the number of people using it. The facilities in the kitchen are also in need of an upgrade / replacing. Besides that - it was a good stay.
