          We took the shuttle bus from base backpackers to Tofo and paid 850mt per person. They sold the bus for us as "door to door" service. We were supposed to be dropped off at a guesthouse in Tofo beach. We got on the bus at...More

          Had a good experience here for the 3-4 nights I stayed. It's a small hostel, which keeps the noise level down. There are two dorm rooms and one private room. A common computer with internet in the lobby, but very slow. Nice porch out back...More
