    Nice hostel in a very cozy city. Be aware - the reception close at 22 (or 23?), so if you also come late - contact the stuff in advance. Located walking distance (about 15-20 minutes) from the bus station. My dorm was nice and clean. They also have a nice kitchen (take a note: no breakfast). Sometimes stuff plays music too loud, just don't hasitate to tell them that this is not good.

    Likein other island vibes, no outside alcoohol alowed. Really nice fireplace with lots of wood, a little pool, the pooltable should be replaced. Staff is very friendly. Rather small hostel. Overall not bad but not great either. For a braai and sleeping its perfect.

    Good: Comfy beds. Relatively nice staff. Lots of info available to visitors. Quiet when I visited because there were so few people but probably loud when it's crowded. Not-so-good: Bunk bed is set absurdly low (I'm 5 feet tall and had to lean over 45 degrees). Staff doesn't seem to communicate with each other - I was asked twice to pay for beers that were already paid off. Some of my valuables were stolen. All in all, this is one of two cheap accommodations in Knysna so options are limited.

    Not my favorite. On the pro side the carpark was secure with easy walking distance to the store and some restaurants. Cons include lack of outlets in rooms and very weak Wi-Fi that barely worked in the common areas never mind the rooms. Mattresses upstairs were firm and comfortable, hot water plentiful. Downstairs dorms a bit smelly

    Overall the facilities and location were satisfactory, but we were woken up at 2:30am by the hostel staff playing music extremely loudly in the common area and they continued their party for at least an hour. I would expect better judgment from the hostel staff, especially when they knew they checked us into the room right above the common area.

    We booked a private room and ended up staying in a house, away from the main hostel building. There was no WiFi, the door of the shared bathroom had no lock, and the bathroom was not very clean. There was limited security at the house, but considering locals warned us to be careful in Knysna, this was not sufficient to make us feel completely safe. I believe our experience may have been better had we stayed in the main hostel building. Overall we were not impressed with the hostel.

    I arrived at Island Vibe to an empty/ abandoned and locked house. I called the number and spoke to a lady who said I needed to go round the back. So we drive round the back and there’s no access to the property. I go into a shop and ask a man there who tells me the place is closed for refurbishment and that the guests are being put in the Russell Hotel. The hotel was nice enough however had no kitchen so we then had to go and buy dinner which isn’t great as travellers trying to save money!!!
