    Absolutely amazing place! A little far from town, but the buses can take you and the taxis were relatively cheap. There was also a convenient store nearby which was nice. The staff were extremely helpful and nice. Would recommend!

    Small but very nice hostel (which is actually a language school). Awesome terrace with hammocks, surrounded by nice plants and a beautiful scenery. Perfect to relax. Absolutely enjoyed to stay there to chill. The closest supermarket is 3 km away so don´´'t forget to bring your own food as there is also no restaurant nearby. The staff was very friendly but not often there.

    When we got there we were showed our room but it was dirty and smelled. The sheets were dirty so we asked about replacement sheets or a different room. The owner promptly told us to get out. That if we didn't like it we should leave immediately. He took money out of his pocket and said here's your money get out. It was night time and raining and we did not want to have to drive through the mountains in such conditions. Spent 30 mins arguing with drunk owner until he agreed to let us stay.

    I need to state that we did book a spot last minute. We booked our reservation around 5pm with arrival time at 11pm. We arrived at 11:30pm. Upon arrival, we were met by a locked gate, no way to knock. We are foreigners so we did not have phone plans & used our data to call multiple times with no answer. We were stranded & forced to find a place at midnight. They put us in danger. Do not allow arrival times late night if you won't accommodate. I do not recommend.
