Kan net die plek aanbeveel vir enige iemand wat slap plek soek in Knysna. Die mense is vriendelik en gasvry. Sal weer daar bly

Was heerlike plek om te bly. Kids was mal daaroor. Dankie vir alles Philip.

I really don't know where the bad reviews about this backpackers come from. It's a backpackers not a 5 star hotel. Everything was up to standard and clean. Enjoyed our 2 night stay.

We were really very disappointed! First of all we paid more than what was initially advertised on Safari Now (when I complained about this Travellers Lodge updated the website and had us pay the higher amount). As we arrived we were told the stove is broken and that the lounge area (the beautiful panoramic view photo they have as part of their advertising) was off limits for guests (since the owners were there). This left us with NO place to cook or prepare any food! There were NO table or chairs or stove or any self-catering options other than a small microwave to be shared with all guests (keep in mind they can accommodate 32 guests). The only table (dirty) was outside... Our dirty dishes stood there for a whole day since we had no place to clean it - when we returned early evening they were still there! They also broke into our car - the lodge is situated in a remote street... Parking is an issue. No complaints about the room and bathroom (oh, we had no warm water on our fist morning), but it was no self-catering backpackers for us. We have been to many backpackers lodges, but this one is definately bottom on my list.
