New Owners so beware
Booked under the old ownership and rang 4 days before to confirm. New owners had no record but said they could accommodate us with a slight change to booking. Arrived and was then told they had no room. Annoying to say the least, but owner seemed uninterested and said he couldn't remember if he had spoken to me. I have used many backpackers in the past and when things go wrong they are usually more than helpful, sadly not here.

Top out of ten We Stayed At
This place is a treasure, the bush pub is fun, beers cold, and paragliding out of this world. Worth a visit!

  Beautiful place. I will always remember the strong smell of waxed wooden floor and the nice smell of fresh clean linen. The walk to the village along the lagoon is ever so romantic. The breakfast they served looked fantastic. I really have to go back there.

  A stunning setting and friendly staff made this a great stop over from the trials of the Baz Bus. The views in early morning from our room were breathtaking and made up for the rather basic showers. wonderful place to relax and unwind made our stay in SA all the more enjoyable.

  Admitedly we were in a bad mood when we checked in here, having just left the best Backpackers on Earth and the best people on Earth along with it, but the staff were unfriendly and the kitchen had no facilities. We pitched our tent under a huge yellow wood and stayed there most of the night. The buildings were wonderful and it was full of potential, so maybe we were just too tired and grumpy to appreciate it.

  Landi is fabulous, and she made our stay there excellent. We only wanted to go for two nights, and we stayed five.

  Just remembering this hostel, wishing I was sitting in the big round chair relaxing, and walking down the boardwalk. I've visited Fairy Knowe twice, the first time in 2000 and then 2002. Always will have a place in my heart...
