BEWARE! This hostel is not a hostel, it's a trap!!! You won't want to leave because everyone is so friendly (staff + guests) and you feel so at home. I stayed longer than intended, as did many of the other friends I made there. Everything is so homey and the hammocks are amazing! I didn't get a chance to sleep in the tents because it was still a little chilly in early April but i will definitely be back to try that out.


Beautiful, peaceful environment.

I felt very much at home and met a lot of cool people. Very tranquil vibe, lots of plants, very interesting Buddhist quote books. Very nice clean wooden floors. Free coffee. Can't recommend enough.
