Property Description

Located in the village of Cartajima, just 16km from Ronda in Andalucia, in the little known Alta Genal valley, the hostel benefits from local walks through resplendent valleys to neighbouring villages, with guided walks by a local expert also available. The area is a mountain bikers dream and popular with birdwatchers, artists and photographers alike.

The magnificent Sierra de Las Nieves National Park is just 10 min by car.

A delightfully laid back atmosphere awaits in this traditionally built 300 year old hostel. Open all year accommodation consists of a dormitory located in a rustic chestnut beamed room, with two double rooms and a private twin bunk room also available.

We enjoyed our overnight adventure. We should of stayed longer to do more of the hikes in the area. Ian is a great host.

One of my favourite hostels through my trip in Andalusia and one in which I have recommended to many others along the way. It's amazing *because* it's not in Ronda, not *in spite* of that. Located in a small white village in the beautiful mountains, it is totally worth a stay. It boasts both a real sense of serenity and outdoors on the one hand but also a personable and gregarious host in Botz. Honestly, could not recommend it more for a unique experience in Spain to get away from the city trips

We were there for one night and had a great time. The hostel's owner was very nice and friendly and made us feel at home right away, really a great guy! It was a lot of fun and we'll definitley be coming back if we're ever in the area. For people looking for good vibes and an experience wich is a bit less touristic this is the place to go.
