    Beautiful hostel with great facilities. The views are amazing and the pool was really nice. All the staff was so sweet and attentive (especially the poolguy). The free breakfast was good but we didn't stay full for that long (but that´'s just how it is with white bread and eggs). The social atmosphere was pretty chill. We ended up staying 5 nights and would definitely recommend this place!

    The views from the hostel are beautiful. The surroundings are nice - big yard, river and mountains. I had a great stay. Rooms are nice and the village is very near.

    This hostel has a nice set up and good installations. They included the breakfast witch is always appreciated. It’s right next to a river and it has a spacious outside bar with pleny of chilling spots. The pool is huge! it was quiet when i got there thought. They make you pay for drinkable water, it shouldn’t be. It is a basic need so we don’t really have a choice but to pay…Also had a friend who had issues with overbooking and had to sleep in a tent instead. Other than that, i recommend it

    Really nice spot if you want to stay close to town but still have jungle vibes. The facilities are basic considering what you pay. I did a private cabin room and the bed was cosy, worth paying the little extra to have privacy m. I think the only thing that makes it an ecolodge is that everything is so basic … didn’t see anything about recycling or being eco friendly etc. Staff were helpful.

    We were very happy about our stay here. A big nice pool, friendly staff and delicious breakfast. But they have to do something about the fans in the rooms. Impossible to sleep from the noise they make when turned on.

    Very Good

    really cool, definitely an experience. We rented a private twin room and this was like camping. The bathrooms are outside so be prepared to see beetles and giant spiders. Our beds were essentially outside we just had a net to keep the bugs out. if you’re a taller person you will have trouble extending your legs haha! We didn’t sleep well because we found the beds really small. Overall if youre looking for comfort this wont be the best spot however if you want an experience go for it :)

    Good location, pretty property, nice staff. The beds and dorm rooms are terrible. The fans are incredibly loud and make it impossible to sleep, facilities are absolutely filthy, and beds are uncomfortable and smell bad. I woke up many times in the night with bugs on me because there were no mosquito nets. I also am convinced the bed I was in had bedbugs because of the bites I have. The bathrooms were disgusting and not cleaned regularly. Way too expensive for the facilities. Do not come here.
