Of all the places I have stayed in my life, this place has the most unique charm. The staff is friendly and as helpful as can be. There are really good Mexican restaurants next door and across the street. The clientele is interesting and the outdoor facilities add to the appeal. The owner continues to renovate the building and add to the gardens, etc. I hope I am fortunate enough to make a return trip, the location is convenient to some areas I love to fish.

From just looking at the outside, this hostel is really cool. There is a natural spring pool, a 3 tier tree house, and a huge yard/lot with lots of gardens, water features and canopies. There is also an outdoor shower that we didn't use but it looked nice. The inside is a bit of a different story. It looks like they are sort of piece-meal renovating the place. We felt a bit uncomfortable in our room. The shades didn't open all the way, there was a weird musty smell, no dresser or hooks, and a very cheap and stiff bed. But, it's a cheap hostel so I wasn't expecting 5 star accommodations. Still, it just felt a bit run down overall and not very comfortable.

Stayed 10 days at the Hoosville and it was an adventure in traveling. Had the Couples Room (an upgrade from a dorm room) and it suited us well! Staff was super friendly and helpful, and the other guests were just as nice. Loved the kitchen and the grounds felt private and relaxing. If you want to try something off the beaten path, this is it! Great bargain!

I didnt have a good experience there. My French guide (le Routard) described it as a little paradise... I was very disappointed when I arrived. The hostel is located on a road with a lot of cars passing, in the middle of nowhere (don't go without a car!). It didnt seem vey clean. Had to pay to have a towel, had to put y sheets myself on my bed... And was in a mixte dormitory with only men in it, who weren't travellers but seemed to live there. The bathroom wasn't clean. The staff told me there were going to be pancakes and coffee from 7 to 11 am but nothing was settled when I woke up at 8:30. I met some nice people but I would definitely not recommend it. Maybe better experience when you are coming as a couple or with friends.
