Thank you for an awesome stay. Your hostel is inviting, warm and friendly. The standard of the accommodation is exceptional and the friendliness of the staff is admirable. My daughter loved all the cute and nice animals and I loved the pool and the eco friendly features. Thanks for a wonderful stay we will certainly be back.
