Great people with love for animals, fantastic atmosphere and conditions! Very good wi-fi, so if you're travelling & working - that's your place. Highly recommend Room Verde - a lot of space, private bathroom & huge terrace.

We moved to a new house, with high standard of cleanness, no noise at night, no animals in the hostel (they remained in the "old hostel" which is now the volunteer's house of our association).
