    A really super place to stay. Tranquil with a lovely atmosphere and a beautiful garden in which to relax. The rooms and beds are great, the staff are wonderful, and a good breakfast too. Located just 5 mins walk from the plaza, I would highly recommend staying here while in Cafayate.

    Really great hostel, clean rooms, and beautiful courtyard. Only complaint is that the rooms were a bit cold, heat or thicker blankets would have been nice.

    Enjoyable stay. Great outdoor courtyard, friendly, helpful staff, great value for money. More of a hotel atmosphere than a backpacker hostel, though this may vary depending on who is staying. We didn’t realise on booking that the kitchen is for staff only - guests are permitted to use the fridge and microwave only (Though staff were nice enough to let us use the hob to cook some plain pasta on our first night).

    Nice hostel in a central location. Our private room was very comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The free breakfast was really good, although a little basic. The outside courtyard is great for chilling out during the day

    We got a private room in this hostel because it was such great value! For the price, breakfast was ok. Staff were friendly and helped us with any questions we had.

    Great hostel with a beautiful outside area. Staff are very friendly and try to help - few people speak English in Cafayete but was easy to muddle through. Breakfast was ok - bread with jams and cereal (like the kids kind).

    Bikes were not in working order and bedding was very old and could do with an upgrade. The patio was a lovely place to hang out for the afternoon. Wifi was average and cut out alot
