    Brilliant hostel with included breakfast creates a social atmosphere. We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom, where there was a WC shared between three rooms. We made some friends here that we traveled on with for many weeks afterwards, and this is easy to do here.

    The staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. There is incredible attention to comfort and cleanliness. The ambiance, too, is special. There are several places for informal meetings, sitting around a fire, chatting, and having a midday cup of coffee. Fresh bottled drinking water is available in multiple locations. And they have a variety of different accomodations--from huge rooms, dorms, and private rooms. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Posada del Abuelito.

    The place is amazing! Clean, warm, chill atmosphere, rich breakfast, fully equipped shared kitchen, hot water in a shower, really nice people that are always ready to help. We traveled with a two years daughter and we felt like part of the family there. Thank you dear Posada del Abuelito for your warm hospitality! Thank you Nili, Gabriel, Nancy, Ana, and all others for your amazing work and warm hearts.
