    The two owners were so lovely and so helpful, and the whole place was really cute. Breakfast was great and the common areas were perfect, and the little dog was the best little addition. Would definitely recommend!

    My favourite hostel during my South Africa trip! The owners were lovely and nothing was too much, they were very helpful showing me things I could do and suggested a bike tour which was amazing! The whole vibe of the hostel is so chilled and feels like somebody’s home, it’s very relaxing. Also no bunk beds in the dorm! Everything was always immaculate, would highly recommend

    Very nice hostel, super helpful staff. Walking distance from the harbor, a bike rental, grocery store, and Knysna Museum. Note that Knysna is a chill place, if you are looking to be adventurous Knysna is not ideal, especially if you don’t have a car. There’s about one hike in the area that very beautiful but takes about half a day.

    Clean. Great common spaces. Good kitchen and good breakfast. Short walk to the waterfront. No towels available. If looking for a quiet stay the common areas are beside the bedrooms so it can be a little noisy if there are people using the common areas but on the other hand it was a really sociable hostel and we met some great people in the common areas.

    Cosy and homey place, I like it. Good location, staff is kind. The matrasses are a bid hard, but it’s doable. Only problem for me was that the dorm is full of mosquito’s...

    Everything you could need and expect from a cheap hostel. The staff were especially great - very helpful and informative. There’s parking, good WiFi and a basic but free breakfast. The hostel is also a short walk to the waterfront for bars and restaurants.

    Noisy. Rooms set round a courtyard and you have groups up drinking late (there’s no 24 hour staff to stop them) and they have people staying there who are working so noisy from 5.30 as people get up to go to work.

    It was alright, the only real thing that bothered me was that there are no real doors for the toilets, it's neither sound-proof nor smell-proof if you know what I mean.. Hostel lacked backpacking atmosphere but Karl was very nice, so was the breakfast that's included. Leisure Island and Thesen Island is nice!
