Stayed here on a whim. The best place I have been, I want to go back! Amazingly chill place to hang out. Yes there are mosquitoes and it is in the swamp in the south but this is what makes this place amazing. Candle lit yoga in an all glass room in a forest/wetland that you access by boardwalk -...

Yes there are more rules, but there's probably a good reason for that. I used to stay/live here quite a lot through the '90's and early 2000's. It has changed, but the staff was nice, the treehouse was clean, the dinner delicious and plentiful, and free fresh chicken eggs for breakfast. Lovely. This is not a hotel guys! If you... More

Do you like mosquitos? This is the forest, I mean swamp, you want to visit. You have my personal guarantee that you will be swarmed with dung-fed mosquitos as soon as you step out of your car. Do you like to swim in stagnant, amoeba-filled, mosquito-breeding ponds? They provide one of those for your swimming pleasure. Do you like to... More

We came here after hearing amazing things. I love going to hippie/yogi events and places to stay and heard about this place from an acquaintance. After hearing that you could stay in a treehouse I was deeply intrigued but wanted to check the place out first before making any overnight commitment. We got out of the car finally after driving...

I stayed here 14 years ago on a road trip with my husband as newly weds, and always wanted to return. This time, I brought my sons (ages 9 and 11) with me to experience the Hostel in the Forest. It is a magical place that deeply resonates with who I am as a person. After checking in, we were... More

If you can totally let go of the "other" world-take off your watch, stow your cell and computer, eat when hungry, sleep when tired, you owe it to yourself to experience the Hostel In The Forest. The staff is very hardworking and loving. The food at dinner is out of this world. Peace and quiet prevail for inner inspection and... More

As you drive down the long, potholed driveway to the Hostel in the Forest you feel like you are entering a different world - albeit on our part only for 1 night (those pesky mozzies). Having stayed at hostels throughout Europe and Asia I had some pre-convienved ideas of what to expect and the best advise I can give is... More

What I see from the reviews is most of the negative ones come from people who 'don't get it'. One of them made a comment about getting the Palapa, or Corrale, as opposed to a treehouse, and Tom said they were thinking of changing the price structure to accommodate that. But the Forest hostel is so much more than a... More

The spirit of the hostel in the forest is magical. Everyone, staff and guests alike, has a smile on their face. If you want a place to truly get away from the world and take a breath of fresh air, visit the hostel in the forest. It is where I go to regain faith in humanity.

This place is unbelievably amazing. You'd never expect to find a place like this in south GA. I'm truly a believer that fate brought me here. I volunteer here, as am I a guest. I live in a community cut off from the seemingly corrupt outside world you see today. That cares for my well being, I work for no... More
