I stayed here around four nights and had a pleasant stay. El valle del anton is small so you can walk everywhere. There were just two other people staying in the hostel at the same time as me (both solo travellers) so we hung out together for the day and went to the hot springs. Like the review below says, the staff dont have English but they were patient with me with my limited Spanish. As a visitor to a Spanish speaking country I believe it is up to me to learn Spanish and not expect all of the locals to speak English. The hammock in the garden is a nice place to relax in the evenings.
