Loved it!!


Great and peacefull, Basic but clean and well kept


this is a hostel without electricity. so the light in the room use propane. the problem is you are not allowed to light the light or turn it off. it is about 1am. some one knot the door. it is really scary. I kept asked who is outside and figured out it is the manage. he told me the door of the room should keep open for whole night and he wanted to turn my light off . really scary.because 20 people canceled at last minutes, there were only two people in one room . it will be hard if it is full

Hello, thanks for the review.The rustic nature of this hostel, with its propane lighting and 9-bed dormitories, does mean that some compromises must be made to ensure the comfort of all.Consequently, we do ask that guests do not lock the other 8 guests out of the dorm rooms at night, and we do shut down the propane lighting after 10pm. I'm pleased to hear the manager left the light on for you once the group cancelled - we aim to be as flexible as each situation allows!
