Where else does the owner hug you when you leave? Vera-Ann does a very good job in this cosy backpackers (only 17 beds). She takes her time to sit down with you to talk about your plans or just for a chat. Take care of the enthousiast dog puppies. They will be very happy to see you ;). The location is relatively close to both the amphitheathre and the golden gate. Bear in mind that during summer, you may not be able to climb the amphitheathre every day due to the weather.


Best hostel during our 3 week backpackers trip! Super cozy, very clean and best self cooked breakfast we had... Super nice owners who we're super helpful in planning our day's activities and always open for a nice chat. Not a party hostel but more of a family feeling which was really a nice change... Always again, highly recommendable!


Best Hostel in town. Perfekt breakfast and pefekt location for young and old to have a great time at GGHP.


We really enjoyed our stay with Vera Ann at Karma Hostel she made us feel very welcome a home from home atmosphere. Vera Ann helped us plan our excursions which were brilliant. Her jams were exceptional.

Door of our room did not close. About 1 hour drive to Sentinel Peak parking. Lovely jams and marmelades.
