The two days in the Refugio Catajima were absolutely nice. Catajima is outside of Ronda and if you like to explore spanish countryside and it`s real life it`s the ideal place to stay. Botz prepares the most delicious dinner ever. To enjoy it on the roof terrace with a glass 'Tinto de verano' and a stunning view over the valley is the best after a long day hiking. I definitely can recommend this place!

If you are looking for a 5 star hostel expierence, this is not the place. However, if you want to dig into the deep atmosphere of old spain and stay in a 300 year old cottage, this is the place you want to stay. To be honest at first I thought I was going to the boonies, but when I met Botts and he told me the history and took me around the town, I fell in love with its charm. Botts was an amazing host. He is a great tour guide, story teller and hiker. If you like to do out door activites. Book

A great place to stay! It's a 300 year old house in a beautiful small village. The hostel has a very friendly atmosphere and is perfectly situated to visit the pueblos blancos.

Extremely good place if you like hiking on the mountains (short or long hikes) and it is also a short distance from Ronda. The owner is also a really nice and funny person to hang out with and he can give advises about the hikes.
