    Perfect location, super clean, wonderful breakfast, super comfortable beds at a good price. Most importantly though the guy running it (I’m terrible with names but he was German) was unbelievably helpful and had the best recommendations. He was super patient since we planned this stay last minute and hadn’t had time to do any research.. He also made an incredible margarita. Super chill vibe with an awesome hangout. One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at.

    Bodhi Hostel and Lounge was a nice place to stay in el Valle de Anton. I only stayed one night and it was perfect for my needs. The staff was friendly and the hostel attracted friendly travelers. The location was great too!

    No surprise this is the best-rated hostel in El Valle - it lives up to it. Guided hikes right from the hostel, instructor-led workout and yoga classes, and coffee and ice cream sold at the reception. This should absolutely be your first choice.

    Great hostel, awesome people, perfect stay! We stayed for a total of four nights in the 8 bed dorm. We had good night sleeps and in the mornings, there were pancackes, fruits and coffee ready for us. As we forgot and did not expect the included breakfast, we were positively surprised. There is space and equipment for your physical workouts and the common area is large: It is easy to socialize there. The only thing, which disturbed me a bit were the dogs, which were lying around.

    Really enjoyed our stay here. The location is perfect for exploring the town and the staff gave us a lot of detailed information for the hikes and onward travel. The beds were super comfy with individual fans and lights. The outside areas were perfect for chilling after a hike. The breakfast was also really good even though you have to get your name down early to not have to wait too long

    Very Good

    Considering this is the highest rated hostel in Valle Anton, we were not overly happy with our stay here. It is in a good location for hikes and everything you’d need in the town and the staff were nice and helpful. It is a quiet place but you will meet some people here. The main issues were firstly the “yoga” class, which were not at all up to standards or good for your body. We both woke up with sore necks after our class; the teacher was holding poses for way too long- no questions were asked about preexisiting injuries and he put lots of pressure on muscles unnecessarily. Not at all how yoga should be and would not recommend if you want your body to be in a good state for hiking!! Also on our final night we found bed bugs in 2 different bunks. For what you’re paying, this place isn’t really worth it.
