There was nobody staying at the hostel other than 1 other couple. So as it was nice to have the place to yourself there is no one to meet. It is a bit out of town and has lovely views but it wasn't really worth the money. I've stayed at cheaper hostels with better views. Also they have adorable hostel dogs that are skin and bones. I don't think they are fed that often. We ended up feeding them ourselves because we felt bad.


Great staff, great food, and the best location of any hostel I've stayed in over the years. Beautiful scenery - absolutely worth the $3 taxi ride to and from town. Issues with hot water were fixed immediately when we informed the staff. Highly recommended!

A lot of inconsistencies between the various websites about this property..prices for meals, drinks etc. Significantly higher..WiFi only good in a couple of areas. No free coffee/ tea nor TV in cottage sitting area. A lovely location, and things went well once we had ironed out the creases.

Thanks for your stay, glad things went well once you settled in. Re websites, you found us through an old website called Hosteltrail that is not updated frequently, we have asked them to correct the information but so far without success, readers should rest assured that our own website, as well as that of Hostelworld, booking.com and Hostelbookers are all updated and correct. And we do have a TV room, along with a beautiful garden, horsebackriding, tennis, a jacuzzi, small gym & great hikes!


Superb location, with a good breakfast and evening meals. Staff only spoke Spanish, but that's my fault not theirs. Had some issues with my booking, was put in the wrong room and had to move and twice had cold shower. Good value for money, great walks straight from the hostel.


Nice cozy and quiet place nested in the mountains. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Slept on a foam mattress with lots of blankets and was super warm despite the cooler temperatures. The hot water bottle was a nice touch to warm up the bed at bedtime! (ask for it in the restaurant)
