    My girlfriend and i had a great stay and wish we could have stayed longer. The hostel is close enough to a couple dissent parks and reserves so we spent both days going on hikes. They helped us with directions and everything we else we needed. Would definitely stay again because the atmosphere and accommodations are very nice.
