Unfortunately, I had an awfull stay at this hostel. I made a reservation for 4 nights, but was kicked out after 2 nights, because 'there had been made a mistake and there were other people who made a reservation before me and there was no more space.' Asking around town, this turned out to be a common practice for hostels... More

The hostel's owner does not seem very friendly at all and this does not leave a good impression. She is helpful with the information you need, but don't expect any staff members to give you that service to make you feel at home. Nevertheless, the hostel is very clean and breakfast is great. Kitchen is well equipped but it closes... More

Everyone in the room also couldn't sleep and kept trying to complainbut no one was at reception. When I walked out of my room at 4am I discovered it was... More

Super friendly staff, nothing fancy but does the job if you want to stay a day or 2. If you want to take the breakfast, mind it that this is just a small kitchen that cannot accomodate all the checked in people. bright spots: they do the trip reservations for you if you are interested in something around the area,...

I stayed for 2 nights in this Hotel. The room are very nice, the theme of the Hotel are the sloths and all refer to them. The owners are kind and available to help you. With the room you have also the breakfast which is quite good and plentiful.

We didn't stay at the backpackers so I can't comment on the accommodation, but we did book tours through them. They gave great advice and even helped us to sort out a problem with a tour booked through a different company.

The hotel owner was very professional but we had to protest with him. He had a dog and the dog barked all night! Only the day after we discovered that the owner was sleeping in a room and tried to put its dog in another. The dog doesn't like to be left alone, so he barked all night. Only almost... More

Yorle is a very nice and helpful host. The breakfast is very good and contains fruits, eggs and pancake. The rooms are very clean, beds are very comfortable. You can book a lot of activities through the hostel. We would definitely recommend to stay here!
