Nice place, staff so friendly ! We arrived at 8 AM after a night in the bus, and they prepared our room asap to let us check in 30min after :). Good atmosphere, small place good to met people.


Great n relaxed little place!


Loved the spa great after a long day of driving !


No issues! Bathroom could use a good remodeling and scrubbing but it still functioned just fine.

A very nice hostel, great location, friendly staff, have stayed here on a few occasions and loved it. Would recommend.


Fantastic staff and atmosphere! The staff really helped us with everything like day tours, transportation etc. even after the supposed closing time. Flexible and convenient, simply the best!

it was a very quiet hostel which was nice but really not much going on. great having a natural pool in the garden


Amazing staff: really helpful and friendly at all times. We were scheduled to arrive long after check-in hours and a staff member automatically contacted us to arrange an after hour check-in and waited really patiently for us to arrive even though we got there more than half an hour later than expected. He even called to ask if we knew how to get to the hostel and to offer his help. Spa Lodge is a unique and cozy place which will make you feel welcome and comfortable. Highly recommended!


Staff were great and advised us well on all activities and local amenities available. Hostel had a really good atmosphere, thank you.
