If you want to get back to a simpler way while immersing yourself in untouched nature then you've found your Eden . Three meals a day are served in the community hall and the food is very organic and very delicious. This hostel as with most has very modest accommodations. No a/c, screenless windows and ceiling fans. Each barracks has 2 (1m 1f) community shower room with no hot water. So if you're attached to 5 star comforts then this is not your place. This is a place to reconnect with yourself and nature. The location is situated in the perfect place for a variety of hikes...falls, volcano, caves... so many different adventures. It is also a few minute walk to the unique black sand beaches. The surrounding villages as with most parts of St Vincent are very poor. The locals are friendly and welcoming. Richmond Vale is an academy that trains volunteers to go to impoverished areas in Africa and Ecuador and do good. The couple who run the academy also run the hiking hostel and are very nice. Again if your soft...this is not your place. If you want a real non fluffy back to nature experience then make your reservation today.
