Yes, I've absolutely known hoarders. The neighbours who lived next door to my old house were hoarders. They did also tend to be quite messy, dirty and not very hygienic as you suggested is often the case. What I find strange is that it's only a small house and four people live there - the mother and father and their two sons, who are also both adults. They all work at the same place and they all pay the mortgage on the house between them. With four people I can't imagine there would be too much room there as it is and yet they just keep on hoarding stuff!
