    Beautiful hostel in wilderness with great vibes all around. Owner is really nice and has put a lot of love in this place. Yummy home cooked meals, lots of stuff to do like cycling, kayaking and hiking, or just chill and read in the hammock :-) Dorm was nice and clean, and rustic. Thank you for a wonderful time.

    Fairy Knowe was such a great place to stay, it had such a chilled vibe and the activities the offered were great. Town and the beach was a 20 minute walk away but it was such a nice walk so it didn’t matter. Would definitely recommend!

    Great spot to explore Wilderness from. Super friendly staffand great atmosphere with a bar that is open late and live music most nights. Located a bit out of town so if you don't have your own transport it's a 30min walk to the village.

    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!

    the kitchen: cattle is not working, stove is okay, oven is not working. the location is quiet and the area is very nice with slackline, volleyball etc. it's a bit far from town but wasn't a problem.

    Considering its isolated location I wish the staff would accept giving us two drops of oil but instead they just wanted to make money out of the situation and sell us meals that where not affordable for backpackers. Kitchen was missing dishes and was incredibly hard to cook. Did not have wifi in dorms. Mainly elderly people in the bar Pros: cool live music.
