I really enjoyed my stay at Garden Stone. I found the staff to be helpful and friendly and the place had a good atmosphere. It has all the facilities necessary in the shared areas and I found it to be a very sociable place. It is short walk into town and it easy to find everything you need there.

Stayed in the five bed dorm which was ok, but the cleanliness could be improved. Good breakfast, but lots of wasps in the sitting area. Nice garden with hammocks. The pool looked too dirty for a swim. Staff was generally nice and friendly.


Good hostel for a few day whilst we visited the falls. Quite hard to communicate with the staff sometimes as they spoke very little English but Martin was very helpful and a legend! The pool is very nice when it gets hot and the rooms have air con which works well.


Friendly and welcoming staff. Not the kind of a party hostel but if youre looking for some restful quietness and privacy it is nice.


OK, friendly staff and well located near the Feria with good food, cold beer and market atmosphere.

Great place, with friendly staff (though they didn't seem to speak English). A fairly quiet place, which suited me - it's not a party hostel. Only complaints were that the WiFi dropped out a lot (despite the router being next to my room) and the mosquitoes in the breakfast area (wear repellent).


The property did not live up to our expectations. The room smelled intensely chemical on arrival and it took over 24 hours for he smell to disappear. It was the room spray to hide the smell of unclean room. Furthermore very weird noises were coming from the stick at night and the hostel didn't seem to care much. It was clear that this is an in and out hostel where good conditions is not priority. The breakfast was not eatable and it was very dirty at the dining area.

The breakfast is excellent....


Solid hostel. Nice garden, nice pool area, good rooms/bathrooms. Criticism: Wifi/Internet at the computer was basically unusable most of the time while I was there (5 days) and there was just one outlet in a 6 bed dorm which made it slightly annoying to charge devices for everyone.


The host seemed nice enough and I wish him well. However, the antique plumbing had lots of problems, and bathrooms and kitchen didnt look hygienic. Having seen excellent reviews, I treated myself to two nights in a room (rather than dorm) and paid double for single occupancy - a SIGNIFICANT expense. This was a mistake. Even at half the price, there should have been efficient plumbing and hygiene. Good points: easy to find near bus terminal, and thankfully quiet.

The garden is really pretty and the breakfast good, even you have to be there really early to get something. WIFI doesn´t work the most time and the staff is not really helpful with sightseeing suggestions. The women at the reception recommended us a friend for an rainforest trip, which ended in nowhere and wasn´t worth the 400 pesos. But in conclusion the rooms are really nice and the location central.


While it might be a little tricky to find (it's a bit off-road at the moment), the staff were friendly and welcoming, and the breakfast ample. The dormitories and bathrooms are old, but clean, and fit-in well with the out-of-the-way vibe of the place. The swimming pool was very useful!


We had a nice, cozy and quite clean double room. The garden is great and so is the staff!


Very nice garden, relaxed atmosphere. Ten minutes walk from the bus station and a very nice 24hr bakery.
