There seems to be a good choice of accommodation in town, but you could do much worse than to stay here. The rooms were nice and there is a kitchen for guests to use and an ok breakfast provided. The best part though was the outdoor lounge where when the sun was out, made for a great place to chill...

The hostel is so so so gorgeous! I loved the vibe and the staff is super friendly! The rooms are big and well decorated! All super clean and so relaxing! It is so closed to the plaza as well which is a bonus. I would love to come back again!

The hostel itself is lovely - comfortable bed and room, lovely outside terrace and great location near to the main square (about 2 blocks). Reasonably priced also. Kitchen facilities are ok, lacks some basic utensils, for example decent knives and a tin opener. The setting is very nice though and we liked the way the place was laid out and...

Stayed 2 nights in Rusty K in a 3 bed-room. The room itself was beautiful, well presented and clean, as was the en-suite bathroom. The courtyard was also stunning, it was just a shame that it was pretty wet and cold when we were there! I imagine it would be a great place to stay in the summer, with the...

A welcome landfall after a tiring journey from Buenos Aires, via Salta. The Flechabus departures from there are not evenly spaced so I had a long wait for a connection, hence it was all the more pleasant to arrive. The staff are friendly and professional and I had an excellent room (double for single use). The patio is a great...
