Reviews for Jembjo’s Knysna Lodge & Backpackers
Very nice place#any time I will come back
Its a great place too stay
Well priced - clean- friendly staff
Typical backpackers, but friendly staff, clean, affordable and close to the shops and Waterfront - will be back
A wonderfully busy and buzzy spot with dorm and private accommodation in the heart of town
Very nice clean backpackers.Host is very helpful and friendly.Is defnitly your money worth coming here.
Friendly staff, clean rooms and well priced. I would return happily next time Im in the area.
Great little backpackers run by two seasoned travellers. It is spotlessly clean with great kitchen and good breakfast. It is only a short walk to all the things that need to be seen...waterfront town etc. Ask Karl or Mandy about anything including tours and the information is extensive and trips booked for you. Enjoy your stay and take a Braai outback.
"They have raised the standards for affordable accommodation"
The owners were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The bedding was clean and new and the rooms were very well kept. Free breakfast and Wifi were the cherry on top. It's also very conveniently situated to get anywhere in Knysna quickly (even walking). I will recommend this place to anybody wanting to stay in Knysna.
We stayed for two nights over the Oyster Festival. We found the establishment to be central, clean and comfortable. The owners are warm and friendly and extremely accommodating. The accommodation was also very reasonable and included breakfast. We would recommend Jembjo's and definitely make use of them again. Kelly Tome
