I was there with a large group of friends and i was looking for a place in the nature where we could enjoy some activities. This was just the perfect spot. Getting there is an experience, especially at night through a narrow long curvy road. View is amazing, facing a lake with mountains around. The hostel is placed on top of a mountain where you can experience a lot of outdoor activity (we did hike and loved it-there are trekking trails for all levels from low to medium). Staff was super helpful and they really made us feel welcomed and provided all necessary support we needed (for slides projection, kitchen, restaurant, etc). Rooms are basic, but clean, spacious and there is everything you might need. There is also a large common area where you can relax. Breakfast is good. There is also restaurant connected to the hostel where you can have pretty good food for a good price. The attention to nature and the many eco friendly activities this hostel runs make this a great choice. Special thanks to Laura and Miriam for all their help always with a smile even when we called them 10 times a day!

The hostel gets five stars just for the location. Having to travel up there on a tiny mountain road is an experience itself. And in the end, being in total silence on top of a hill looking over a city - serenity. Hostel itself is good also. (:

This place is about freedom peace inspiration and nature for me! The hostel located on the top of a nice special mountain where you have this views and landscapes to every direction that makes your lungs spread wide like some big fleshy wings shaped more like bladders but with the misplaced minds of eagles! From the huge terrace you can see magic sunsets with three lake and you can always clear your head. It's a perfect place to relax and have some space and time for yourself but also you can find very nice people to company you! I love the way how the staff make this job up there. They are young energetic and generous and you can also find international volunteers. If you are interested in ecological solutions, sustainable lifestyle and recycling... you will also find a lot of inspiration! They have a synergic garden, shop with recycled creative things! Special extra point for the origami butterflies that are waiting for the guest on the bed :)
