I want to go back! Super sweet little hostel with a really social vibe and a lot of great people. Walking distance from tons of beaches, and there's always groups leaving for various hikes and explorations. The highlight is definitely the welcoming, social atmosphere-- it is perfectly sanitary but not the cleanest place in the whole world, likely just because... More

Brilliant hostel. I spent eight nights here, and met some great people. The atmosphere is brilliant, really laid back and pleasant, and it was easy to get talking to other travellers in the communal area, over a beer or wine, and a game of jenga! Uli is very friendly and helpful, and it is easy to get people together to... More

When I arrived, it was after the reception had closed (about 10:30pm). Immediately when I walked in, everyone who was sitting outside talking said hello etc. They also told me where my cabin was, where to... More

A truly amazing stay. This is how hostels should be run; friendly helpful staff with lists of ideas on what to do, with hammocks to laze in, a creek nearby that you can walk up, a beautiful seaside village and beach to go. The facilities are very good; do your washing, cook your food, they have lots of free things... More

I spent three relaxing days at this hostel. Uli was very friendly and helpful, and the vibe of the place was enough to make you want to spend a week. I met more than one person who had extended their stay. Highly recommend.

Me and a friend stayed here for 5 days. Our stay was so amazing we almost didn't want to leave. If you're travelling and need a wee break from all the hustle and bustle of cities, this is the place for you. The area is surrounded by beautiful hikes, river walks, monasteries, and beaches. The hostel itself is clean, has... More
