Knysna Backpackers is a part of the Knysna Historical Society and built around 1910. Hjalmar Harison Thesen, grandson of Arnt Thesen who arrived here with his family from Norway in 1870, lived in this home until 1947. The Duthie family lived here thereafter in 1953 and they kept ownership of the house till 1992 then passed into the hands of the Harvey Family. We, the Blume family, bought the property in 1998 and have managed/owned Knysna Backpackers ever since then as a family business. With original Yellow wood floors and window frames, stunning view of Knysna and the lagoon we strive as a family to make our guests feel as if Knysna Backpackers is a home away from home and to enjoy our beautiful town of Knysna. Good Old Family Hospitality!!!
