Very nice facility but it's up on a steep hill and a little off the main road, so it's a bit difficult to find. The staff is great and their three dogs are sweet.


Had a nice stay. You can reach the waterfront in 10 minutes and the main street in 5. Even though the rooms are quite sensitive, they are comfortable.


very nice and helpful staff, recommended nice walk to waterfall, quiet place (not for party-seeking backpacjers), very nice room, kitchen


Very welcoming staff, not too far from the main street or waterfront, had a pleasant stay.


this place is beautiful and the staff are friendly. we enjoyed our stay here, except for the fact that our car got robbed overnight. the parking area is small and some guests are forced to park on the street leading to the backpackers. i hope this backpackers invests in a watch person overnight to prevent other cars from being robbed. our car had nothing on the seats, so no reason for robbery, aside from that, our experience here was lovely. the dog is so cute.
