Awesome hostel. The dorms are great, very quiet and super comfortable. The dormitory was large for only 6 beds and had sufficient shelves and lockers for everyone. The grounds are beautiful. The staff was friendly and helpful. The common areas are perfect and the kitchen is the best I have seen in South and Central America. I liked it so... More

I went in this hostel in June 2015, regarding to the Lonely Planet recommendation and it was really nice, the staff is helpful and kind, the facilities are well done, there is some hot water in every bathroom, wifi is working in every places of the hostel (and it is a big one). The only bad point of this hostel... More

This is such a lovely place! It was really quiet while I was there, and for a while I was the only one at the hostel. Really gorgeous space with a nice clean pool, enormous kitchen, great common areas for lounging or doing yoga....all in all awesome! My only small complaint is about the owner....all the other reviews rave about... More

My daughter and I have traveled internationally for 15 years. This is one of the finest hostels we have found. Xavier and Yatzi knew every piece of information we needed, including allowing the use of their phones to arrange bus and air flights. The hostel setting is lush and green, with fruit trees and bird feeders. Hammocks! Swimming pool! Our... More

Tinto is by far one of the greatest hostels i have stayed in world wide. A pleasant relaxed atmosphere that offers use of two kitchens, common area, swimming pool and of course my favourite 'hamocks'. The layout of the hostel is great and their prices are amazing value for money.

Tinto is a unique and amazing hostel. It is amazing that it is only 20mil for a dorm. Its such a beautiful little place. It has the feel of a finca with several different buildings all connected with the cutest little walk ways and even a sort of court yard garden. Its just one of these places you have to... More

A superior guest house that does for accommodation in Barichara what a cup of "tinto" coffee does for getting up in the morning. The town lies on a steep hill so it's quite a climb from the entrance gate to reception. Never mind---my room was spacious and comfortable in what looked like a traditional building, and the staff went out... More

We were so surprised to find this gem. We arrived on a recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed. The place is spacious, with two outdoor kitchens, a pool, lovely garden and hammocks. The rooms are spaced apart from each other and provide lots of privacy. We were in a large room with great shower (best I have... More

The hotel has very friendly staff. There is a well equiped and clean kitchen. Clean rooms and good value for money. And Barichara is definitely a beautiful place to be. Be sure to make the walk down to Guane.
