After a trek in the mountains this proved to be the wrong choice as a place to relax. Had booked a room the day before, but when i returned they had no record.
Rooms are OK, shower a trickle, but the rooms, self contained huts really are too exposed to any noise from anywhere in the building and added to the fact that several of the guests seemed to be working on US time, meant that the bus the following morning became the most realistic option for sleep.
Food was fine, although would have been grateful to have been spared the hungry dogs by my side in the restaurant for the duration of dinner. I understand this a hostel that has its community roots and projects and that people staying are cooperating with the community, but the place has to function as a hostelry foremost and not just as a residence for long term collaborators, if it is to have a future.
Staff were fine and some of those running the establishment were genuinely friendly and warm, but at the advertised $35 a night rate, they will have to have a think about how people can get some rest in, which is basic in this line of business.More
