22 September 2011

Liked: Lovely getaway tucked away in the mountains. Great hostel and facilities (except wi-fi)

Disliked: The lack of a warm reception - our hosts have been in the business for a number of years which showed in the lack of enthusiasm and rushed introduction to the hostel. Non existent Wi-Fi - After reporting a problem with the internet, we were told to try elsewhere down the road and it was made very obvious that it was too much trouble for the hosts to try resolve the matter. We gave up waiting in the end and left. Such a shame to have such inhospitable hosts in the hospitality industry.

Liked: The location, while a little out of the way, was just incredible - looking out of the dorm window to see the mist rolling in over a forest-covered mountain, sunset fully in swing... Just mazing. And the hosts were very helpful - picking me up and dropping me off to the local train/bus stations. Loved it.

Disliked: Just make sure you bring dinner AND breakfast for the next morning... But the place is amazing. No dislikes : )
