Staff was friendly & great. I stayed in a private room with a sink, bathroom and shower are separate. Internet did not work in the room. The hostel itself is a beautiful building surrounded by nature a bus stop nearby but inconvenient times, I did have to get a cab a few times to get to or from town.

Beautiful area right outside of the town itself, friendly staff. I had a private room with sink, internet did not work inside the room. The bus stop is close by but bus schedules are not always convenient so I did end up paying for a couple of cabs.
