Liked: The location, owners, use of their wonderful kitchen, video selections and a DVD player in each room! Qauint, overall perfect. I do have a problem with that party question, which seems to appear on all your questionnaires and of course it has to be answered or it won't go. Therefore, my answer is only there so that the survey will go, it does not reflect my views on it, as that was not my purpose. An N/A option might be adviseable.I would return to this hostel in a heart beat! They were wonderful!

Liked: The atmosphere was great. I saved money by buying my own food and then cooking most nights at the Guesthouse. I met other fellow travelors, and we all had such a wonderful time staying there. It truly was a home away from home. I recommend the Guesthouse to anyone and everyone.

Liked: We loved the warm, friendly atmosphere, and the opportunity to meet so many different world travelers. Also, loved the location, and the beauty of the home itself, with its gorgeous patio. The owners have fostered a quiet, safe environment, and one in which we could truly relax, cook our breakfast in the lovely kitchen, and just sit and kibbutz. Excellent location for our vacation!
