Stayed here for 1 night. Knysna is a small and really comfy place. Everything is just a 5- 10 min walk away (except for two heads, can get there easily by car/public transport/taxi). Real nice people, trying to help you with everything (called other hostels to make reservations, book tours, find out which restaurants are nice to eat etc. etc.). Stayed in dorms because double rooms were full. Dorms were quite empty (only 1 other person), so quiet and peaceful. There was some noise from the streets (earplugs are useful). Showers bit unpractical because you're practically naked whilst you're drying off. Sanitary facilities always neat & clean. You can park your car safely next to the hostel or in front of it. Did our laundry here for us at only 70 rands for A LOT of laundry (wash + dry). All the gates are secured with a code. Free (good) wifi and breakfast. Kitchen clean and lots of equipment to cook. Cosy common room to watch TV. We really liked our stay here and can certainly recommend for: couples, people travelling on their own (not really for families).
