    Really loved my stay here! Felt like I was in the middle of nowhere but it was only a short 8 min walk to town. Loved staying in their outdoor dorms. Pool is so beautiful with the fallen tree laying across and be sure to visit ‘the secret spot’ during your stay!

    One of the coolest hostels I've ever stayed at. Has a large communal area with bar, swimming pool, terrace, and a riverside area, with loads of places to chill. The couple who run it are fantastic and it's close to some great walks into the mountains and to some waterfalls. 5*!!

    Pros: Very laid back, quiet hostel. Fantastic pool and grounds. Super peaceful. Great fresh juices and drinks at the bar. Friendly front desk staff. Plenty of locker space. Cons: Breakfast portion was a bit small and you're not supposed to bring food in even though the restaurant wasn't open on site. Have to pay for drinking water. No hot showers. For the price, could do better.

    El hostal tiene elementos que hacen que la estadía no sea memorable. 1. La mayoría de las personas de recepción, por no decir todos, no tienen ni idea de cómo orientarte sobre las actividades y lugares turísticos de minca, básicamente tienes que buscar información por fuera. 2. El río está invadido de insectos por lo que no se puede disfrutar de este. 3. El aseo de los baños no es tan frecuente. De resto es un lugar bastante estratégico para quedarse con un ambiente muy tranquilo.
