The title says it all...in six months travelling we haven't found another hostel this warm and friendly. Run by Valentina and her wonderful family, we recieved amazing service from the moment we arrived. It's not often you get a city tour by the owner, offered oranges frequently, taught the etiquette of mate drinking, kisses when you return everyday, transport in other towns organised for you, and CAKE! This family went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home. Thanks so much Valentina. If you ever come to New Zealand make sure to get in touch!
