We made a reservation for 2 nights and ended up staying 4! Don't let the out of town location dissuade you from staying. It's a 30min downhill walk into town and a $3 taxi ride back. Complimentary pick-up and drop-off service from/to the bus station is available. The owners know you are there to see the Saturday market and will gladly give you a ride down in the morning. While the setting is very relaxing activities such as hiking and tennis are available. We stayed in the spacious 8 person dorm. The comfortable beds are upstairs while downstairs is the TV/DVD player and kitchen. The bathroom was spotless and the water hot.
Richard, Sophie and Alex were gracious hosts and the dogs great fun to play with. I accompanied them to a carnival fiesta in nearby Peguche where we joined a wedding procession with a marching band and attended a concert for the indigenous population. The headliners were from Bolivia! It was a fantastic experience.
I hope to return sooner than later.
