We had read only good reviews of this place and even got another recommendation for this place on our bus ride in. We rather expected to be disappointed after all the hype but so far, we have been impressed. The owner’s son met us at the gate and greeted us by name. He immediately took us up to our 4th story room and told us to come down and register whenever we were refreshed. Our room is rather large with a small table and two chairs. The bed is exceptionally comfortable. We have a great view up at the mountains. Shower is very large although it doesn’t have the most water pressure. On the 4th floor, we are still able to get fast wi-fi.

They have a shared kitchen and many people seem to use it. The communal area is large (with TV and beer/water for sale) but our favorite part is the table outside in the garden-beautiful!We moved to a room on the 2nd floor with a balcony (304) and stayed there for 2 weeks–we feel it’s the best room in the place.

When my mom came to visit, we again stayed here and were able to just send an email to make sure we were reserved.
