First of all, the host actually drove me from Drake bay to his hostel. That is very nice. He also drove me to the airport the next day, albeit for a small fee, which is not fantastic but still reasonable. I was offered a dinner for 6$, which is good value and tasty.

Couldn't recommend this place more highly. The owners are the most lovely an helpful people, the hammocks are the most relaxing and comfortable place to spend down time and the atmosphere and friendliness between guests was wonderful.

est ce qu il y a un super marche et une banque proche ( a pied ) merci
Il n'y a pas de banque ou de guicher donc apportez de l'argent comptant seulement. Il y a 2 super-marchés et un restaurant (soda). Il y a plus de restaurants si vous allez en ville. La nourriture préparée peut être commandée directement avec l'hostel.

"The rooms in the separate house are quieter than the ones in the main house"
"They have a variety of options including dorm rooms, privates, and home-stays; all of which are good options."
"I had a room at the end of the hall which was nice, since I didn't have anyone walking by after I had turned in for the night - or before I rose in the morning (the doors to the rooms are curtains)."

"All rooms are the same I think"
