Extremely relaxing experience! Monica and Miguel made me feel at home during my stay. The dinners cooked by Monica and Asado by Miguel were exceptional. I had no experience with horses coming in but I am leaving with a little knowledge thanks to Miguel and His teaching. I would recommend a few days here to unwind and appreciate what the Uruguay countryside has to offer. El galope is a must!
This is a great hostel, particularly to rest in the beautiful country. The beds are nice and comfortable, it's warm and easy to get a really good night's sleep. The breakfast is also really great, as are all of Monica's meals. The horse ride was also fantastic, Miguel is a really good teacher and he takes a lot of pictures on your camera as well. I'd highly recommend this hostel to anyone, Monica and Miguel are nice, friendly and helpful.
More a B&B than a hostel so although it seems expensive you get a lot for your money. The food is very nice, the estancia was beautiful and horse riding was really good fun - Miguel is a great teacher. We only stayed for two nights but would have happily stayed longer.
Only disappointment was that they changed the horseback times from 7:40 AM to 15:30, which from I could tell was an attempt to keep travelers at the farm, thus leading to more money spent. Other than that the staff were very nice, and my friend an I are satisfied.
