Hidden in the bushes, some walk from the road lies Zopilote. It is run by an enthousiastic team (mostly volunteers).
The dorms are fine and have a locker (be sure to bring your own lock, they don't have them). Everything is open so it can be a bit noisy at night though. The normal showers are primitive and they encourage to take very short showers. But don't take a normal shower! The Japanese showers in the back are much nicer and have a great ambiance! (although still primitive)
On saturday and tuesday it is pizzanight which atracts tourists of all hostals nearby. It is at the nica and cozy 'restaurant' just below the lodge and the pizza's are very good.
