A hostel like no other I have seen in the world! Set in a very tranquil location, it is spotlessly clean and tidy. We stayed in the king size room, which was beautiful. The kitchen had all the equipment you'd need. It's located a little way out of town, so you need to plan your days a little. The bikes... More

Location is perfect to start wondering through the DR mountains, see waterfalls and enjoy a relaxing time. Molly-Ann is a great host and she offered us advices not only during our stay at her hostel but also afterwards along our trip in DR. We couldn't thank her more. Also the staff there is very helpful and friendly. Everything was very... More

More a guesthouse than a hostel, it has places to sit and read or hang out in the garden, the porch and indoors in the sitting room. The shared kitchen is lovely, and the bedrooms are modern, comfortable and very clean. Molly and Rodolfo were very friendly, and many activities can be arranged through them or David, a local guide.... More

This was a perfect base for our Jarabacoa adventures. Molly is a gracious and thorough host. Her knowledge of local service providers (such as drivers) was extremely useful. The deluxe room is gorgeous. The main town is a nice 10-15 minute walk - though I don't recommend the walk at night due to visibility concerns. No safety concerns whatsoever.

We stayed here on our way from Paraiso to Sosua. What beauty in the DR mountains!! Molly-Ann and her team made our stay just perfect. Affordable, clean, comfy... Everything is high quality from the rain shower to the memory foam mattresses. Only regret is that we're not staying longer.

The rooms are far more modern and clean than in many hotels. I wouldn't call this as a hostel although some rooms have shared bathroom and there is kitchen for everybody's use. That's about it from hostel perspective. Well, the price is from the hostel side too luckily :) The walk to the downtown Jarabacoa area is 15mins if you... More

Located out of town, this place is brilliant. We had the 'posh' room, nice bed and en-suite, well worth the little extra. The house is lovely, four rooms, free coffee, fantastic, well set up kitchen. Noisy cockerels and dogs at night, but you are in the country. The best thing about this place is Molly, possibly the nicest host I... More

Located a little outside of town. Make sure to get good directions from Molly. The hostel is perfectly set in the countryside just outside the city (5min drive). Not to be confused with the Jarabacoa Mountain hostel in town. The rooms are in a newly constructed home. Very clean and well maintained. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms were great. Molly...

I had a great, long stay, almost two weeks I believe. It was a relaxing, homey feeling place, and Molly goes out of her way to make sure the guests have all they need. They clean relentlessly, and can help you with anything you might need. It is a small place that feels more like a home, although there is... More
