"I found the facilities excellent, the staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean, the beds comfortable. The wifi and Dstv are great bonuses and, for the price one pays the complimentary breakfast is what shows that the owners and staff are willing to go the extra mile and understand and care about the welfare of their patrons. I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the facilities and will not hesitate to recommend Jembjo's as an amazing and affordable place to stay while in Knysna. "

All noise stopped at 10:30 so a good night’s sleep was easy to have. The children loved it and we're very sad to say goodbye.

"Seeing that we had never stayed in a back-packer type of accommodation before, we were pleasantly surprised. Comfortable room and great dorm bed, self-help fully equipped kitchen, neat garden and braai facility, safe off-street parking; and our hosts Karl and Mandy were very friendly, helpful and compassionate especially when our son took ill.
They were also very accommodating as they looked after our luggage and car and offered my son a much needed hot shower after the grueling Knysna Pick 'n Pay mountain biking race.
We can definitely recommend Jembjo's Knysna Lodge to anyone and we'll be sure to make use of it again.
