    Loved our 5 day stay here. Clean , comfortable, great food, and best of all the most helpful friendly owners who even provided 2 wonderful evening meals. Highly recommend this place- one of the best stays I've had in a long time.

    Very nice place. The lodge is a bit hard to find, it's right at the end of the road and there are a few other ones that look a little like it on the way in. As soon as we got here they welcomed us....More

    The most beautiful hostel I've been so far. Friendly, clean, well equipped kitchen, such comfortable rooms, there is nothing bad to say! For a backpacker, it's one of the expensive ones, but every cent is worth it! Eat two times less in McDonald's and cook...More
