    I've stayed at this backpacker numerous times over the last few years and keep coming back. This place is something really special! It's the energy, the landscape, the locals, the owners, the vibes, the views... Just everthing. This year I had to go back to...More

    This hostel really is set in a stunning location although it is very remote! Only access by 4x4... Useful shuttle collects from local area. The secure parking is not quite what I would call secure...it's located around the back of someone's house! Difficult to find...More
