    This is easily one of the best hostels we’ve ever stayed in- we cannot rate it high enough!! If your looking for a beautiful place to stay on the lake, chilled out vibes with incredible views, top notch super clean facilities, some of the best tasting (& very reasonably priced) food we’ve ever had from a hostel - this is it. We could’ve stayed for months, it was a home away from home! Massive shout out to the staff, especially Will- thankyou so much, you’re all an absolute bunch of legends!!!

    This hostel was awesome. The location was remote and had beautiful views. So many places to chill out, either by the water in a hammock or above the rooms watching the sunrise. The food and staff where top notch. Highly recommended!!

    The hostel is pretty isolated from other civilization. A private boat to Santiago is Q35 total (can be split between people. There is no internet and not much to buy. Stock up on snacks and maybe buy some data. But this place is awesome. I did not feel like I needed internet at all. Distracted by the great people, staff and my reading on the lake side hammock. They make fresh brownies regularly. And the food there is amazing and unmatched by all other hostels you’ll be able to find.

    Loved the short few days we spent in this sweet secluded little haven. Kayaked and sunbathed in the hammocks and played board games and watched the stars at night. Never short of things to do. Will is the man. Sorted every little problem we had and made us feel welcomed. The beds are soft and the home cooked meals were great. Could’ve easily stayed for several months. There are rules like no electricity during the day, no water at night, no wifi but it’s not a problem at all. Don’t miss out!

    Cannot recommend this place any more. The food was the best I’ve had since I’ve been away (7 weeks), with a special mention to the tahini sauce in the bliss bowl, the staff are incredible and the garden is sooo beautiful. Get yourself here x

    I loved my stay here, it was more that I didn’t realise it was completely out by itself so not their fault. Staff were friendly but bathrooms could have been cleaned abit more but fine really. Beautiful view, was v chilled until Aussie day when it got quite rowdy but all good. Would stay here again!
