This backpackers certainly has its very own style and atmosphere (the animals are a big plus) and the facilities are nice, but if you don't have a car you are kind of stuck there. Also, staff was sometimes quite grumpy and disorganised.


The owner is a very sweet lady who has had this place for decades and loves it. Her beautiful place is located in a beautiful spot around the mountains. However, the lodge's staff seems to be made up of volunteers who are working for a place to stay, so they know less than half what you ask them, and they forget to be of service, it feels like too much of a favor they "have to" do instead of a service. Not the friendliest staff you'll meet.


No water in the morning But a nice place to stay, good food, nice and helpfull staff


This place has an amazing feel and is very Eco friendly. It is a great place to relax and put your feet up!!

Awesome place in the national park, great surrounding. Staff are helpful with recommendation but slow and forgetful with basics like washing was left in machine. Great atmosphere. Wifi is really poor. Recommended
