    We loved this hostel! One of the nicest on our trip so far. Super friendly staff that are so nice and helpful. Hostel is so clean and very relaxing. The garden is beautiful and a nice place to sit in after breakfast with a coffee, and at the end of a long day. Would highly recommend!

    Rusty-k was fantastic - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The breakfast was some pastries and dulce de leche and jam with coffee/juice and was just what we needed. It was served on a big wooden board with horse shoes for handles. The staff were very friendly and one of the ladies sells handmade jewellery and handmade soap, so definitely ask about that! A very cleanly place, a short walk from the centre (so it is a little tranquil haven) and there is a kitchen available for use in the hostel.

    Great hostel close to the main square. Lovely garden with enough place to relax. They have a kitchen which they allow you to use for 'simple' cooking/mealprep and an outside bbq area. Good wifi and friendly staff.

    Great hostel. Everything is in walkable distance. Shower is alright, the garden is absolutely fantastic, breakfast is included, you can use the kitchen and rent bikes to do a bodega tour. The only slight downside was the bed, the mattress wasn't really comfy. Would stay there again!

    The place was pretty cool, and the staff really friendly. There was almost no one there when we stayed and there were no bikes available for rental. Pretty decent for staying the night in Cafayate but not much in terms of hostel experience.

    Breakfast is very very poor, a dry pastry, a bit bit of butter, and marmalade. Coffee tea, shady yogurt and cheapest cereals, pretty disappointing. Room was nice and pretty clean, and overall hostel as well.

    Convenient location, clean hostel. Only staff did not speak English, thus it was a bit complicated to arrange trips and understand details.
