I would strongly recommend Ryokan Muntri Boutique to weary Travellers;It has a cool calm ambience and all the facilities a backpackers hostel has and more! My experience chilling out after hot afternoon walks and taking rain showers were most exhilarating. Would recommend this! Mac is hospitable and very friendly!

As mentioned, this is very clean, curtious and great staff members. Mac is one cannot be forgotten. I went on my own, but soon I realised I was not alone. In such friendly atmosphere, one feels surrounded by friends. I highly recommend it.
