NO buses go within 10 km of the place, contrary to what the web site says. The owners were nice enough to drive me back to the bus stop, but I had to hitchhike to get there. As a single female traveler, this was not something I wanted to do, and had planned my hostels to be accessible via bus. Please CHANGE THE WEBSITE information, it is very misleading.
