    This was a really nice hostel to stay at. Excellent places to chill outside, they can hire bikes for travel around cafayete and spoke a good amount of English. (Very useful as our Spanish is pretty terrible!) Also good advice for the wineries to visit. Thanks again guys!

    Beautiful patio and delicious homemade bread for breakfast. I appreciated the lack of disposable items for breakfast and the free water refills. The bikes available for hire looked excellent and staff were helpful with advice. Wine available for purchase at low prices. Beds comfortable with individual charging point and light. Only downside was one bathroom for the dorm we were in. Shower was excellent but it could be a long wait for the toilet at times.

    Good hostel, very clean bathrooms & rooms, organized kitchen, friendly staff, organize nice BBQs & peñas every couple days, have amazing bikes for rent (best in town if you ask me, and I ride a bike every day), have a lot of tips regarding wine tasting/hiking/etc (if you speak to the right person, Mati knows a lot). The breakfast is pretty simple. My only problem was that they didn't let us use the bathroom or kitchen after we checked out (our bus left at 16:00), never happened to me before.

    The hostel was well located and comfortable. Good rooms, beds, etc. nice courtyard. The hostel is small so when people party until 7 am with music blastingalmost outside your room is totally annoying. I am all for a party as long as it is far enough from the rooms so as no to bother the other guests. I had to get up at 5 am to ask that they stop the music and the party which had been going on since the night before. Apparently the owner or owners were partying with the guests too but left.

    Nice location and good hot showers but the breakfast was bad and they ran out early. The staff tried to avoid giving us our change and I had to show them the money in my wallet to prove that they hadn’t which is ridiculous. Nice atmosphere, though, with a well equipped kitchen, and it was very clean.
