    Thank you for the fantastic days with you! I enjoyed your tours. I will never forget the horseback riding with that Sabanero and the Indiana hike. Your location is also perfect. I have been able to park my rental car safely in the garden. There was a sturdy fence that closed off the garden. The Santa Rosa park is within walking distance and within an hour I was in the rainforest at the Rincon de Vieja. I will also have sweet memories at your garden that borders on that beautiful river.

    The backyard gate is completely broken down, there's no lock on the dorm rooms, no lockers. Entirely possible for someone from outside the hostel to walk right into the dorm room. The dorm was hot as hell all night long. There's no windows, ventilation, or fans so even tho it was nice and cool outside... temps remained like an oven inside while trying to sleep. Sheets were very rough, but clean. WiFi would drop in the dorm. Cold showers. I would not stay there again or recommend to a friend.
