The hidden treat is the house mascot Yogi the dog. What a delight but watch out if he really likes you he will want you to seat by him on the couch and not want to let you go! So enjoyed this stay with my daughter. The staff is wonderful and the visitors are very conversant of their native countries.

Reservation was cancelled before I ever had a chance to visit or stay. There was a glitch in the booking system, which allowed me to book and confirm my stay. The next day I was notified that I would not be able to stay at the hostel. End of story. With no effort to rectify or adjust the accommodations.

The bathroom it's small but more than enough and it was also very clean. There is wifi also in the bedroom. The common areas are cozy, and makes...

We stayed at the hostel for two nights in September. While the village was quiet due to the off season there were lots of people staying in the hostel. The staff were excellent and very inclusive. We went to Taco Tuesday with the whole group and felt very welcomed. Great vibes in the place. Just watch out of the resident...

“The private shower is tiny and the water flow is volatile. Bring a noise cancellation device or rain sounds from your tablet.”
