I'm not sure what to make of some of the not-so-good reviews posted - they do not reflect our experience at all. My girlfriend and I stayed here on a 2.5 month backpacking trip and both felt like it was one of the highlights. In fact, we were so comfortable here that we extended our stay by several nights (that and my girlfriend was sick for a couple days...but I guess she could hardly have picked a better place to get sick). I found the guesthouse to be clean, comfortable, and homey. The breakfast was excellent and the fact that it was served at a specific time and place (i think 9-10 or something like that) made it a good way to meet other travelers. We also used the parilla in the back yard and grilled up some meat. The location is good too- 10 minutes from the plaza but in a quiet neighborhood.
Beatrice was very nice and helpful...perhaps like everywhere in South America, it really helped our experience that we are both fluent in Spanish. I felt like the staff were friendly. Beatrice's tour company is also useful for arranging activities in the area, and the prices are good.
There was an incident while we were staying in which the neighbor's wall collapsed into Forastero's driveway, causing internet and power problems, but this can't be blamed on Beatrice - just on shoddy construction and the fact that the neighbor was storing stacks of wood pallets up against his side of the wall!
