Right on the riverside, the location can't be beaten. Well stocked kitchen facilities, clean bedroom, and bathroom. Owners are incredibly helpful about what to do in the area. Lovely local walks in the forest. No WiFi, so a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life!

Stayed here one night mid Jan 2015 with my sister. What a great place and great hosts. My first visit to a backpackers lodge. Brilliant. Charming. Highly recommended. Large kitchen, lovely lounge area, great outdoor space, linen included. Wish I could return, mayhaps some years hence.

“We had a double room in the main building which we were happy with. They also have one double room in a separate building just outside the main building which might be more private and quiet if there're many people staying at Globetrekkers.”
