I stayed at two of the four places in the town, wanted to see what all the fuss was about at the Black Sheep Inn.
I would recommend any of the cheaper places, great atmosphere and your own room at one third the price of a dorm at the Black Sheep, we shared a dorm with 13 people in such a cramped room. Not to mention 1 shower between 13 people!
I was unlucky enough to meet the owners who were so rude. The staff were apologetic about them saying they have been wanting to distance themselves from the tourists/business for a while… they would have no business without us!
Its sad when Eco friendly Hippies start talking about supply and demand!, I would support the locals, these people don't deserve or need the money.
Don't let this put you off the Quiliota loop, its a must see, so beautiful! Getting there is just as much fun.
