    We've stayed in 33 hostels so far on our trip and this was by far the best! The walk up to the hostel is difficult but 100% worth it when you're greeted with an ice cold water. The staff were amazing and had perfect English. The food was unreal - definitely join in with the 3 course dinner every night. The perfect place to watch the sunset and have happy hour cocktails. Yoga in the mornings! The huts were great and made for a unique stay! Even the cold outdoor showers were refreshing. STAY HERE!

    The hike up is very steep, but the view we got was amazing. The staff was very knowledgeable about the surrounding area, facilities were clean, the all vegetarian menu was delicious.

    Perfect backpackers vibe. Amazing sunset bar. Staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Communal dinners are very tasty and well organized and timed. The walk up is a b*tch but it's definitely worth it for the views and the quietness. Recommendations : - arrive ahead of sunset - ask (literally) any local in the village for the path to the entrance of Casa Loma. and Google indications are misleading

    Casa Loma is so amazing I wish I could have stayed for a month instead of only 4 nights. As soon as I arrived I felt so relaxed and happy. Stunning views, loved the staff, and a really friendly, open, and social atmosphere. Dinners are great. The middle of town is right down the hill and it’s easy to get to from the colectivo terminal. Everything is kind of open air but I think that adds to the experience. Showers are cold and not super strong but it’s to be expected in an outdoorsy setting.

    One of my favourite hostels in South America. Brilliant views of the sunset and worth the many steps up to the hostel. The lack of Wifi encourages the nice social atmosphere. Nice place to chill out and enjoy food company. Would stay here again

    Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Casa Loma is a little haven in the mountain. So peaceful and easy to relax with amazing views. It's incredible watching the sunset here and it's location makes it so unique! Very clean, daily yoga classes and nice food. Only complaint was lack of communication from staff about yoga being cancelled one morning, and some confusion calculating people's tabs - check all your add-ons are included!

    Up a steep hill but worth the walk. Dorm is basic but does the job. Nice view from the showers! Group dinner in the evening ok, not great for anyone with allergies etc. Spectacular view on terrace at sunset. Lovely chilled atmosphere
