                              Well this has certainly stretched the definition of "botique". The photographs were probably taken in a bygone era before the place became tired and dirty. We felt the photographs do not accurately depict the current state of the place. The kitchen was dirty with a dishwasher full of dirty dishes and the fridge was dirty and full of aging scraps.The basic appliances such as kettle were not working. We slept there one night and the following morning our group of 12 were 100% in agreement that we needed to leave. We were very fortunate to find alternative accommodation nearby at the last...

                              Cleanliness was a big issue! Photo's doesn't represent what is offered.

                              Basic but very artistic rustic place.

                              What a fantastic experience, it was our first time staying at a backpackers and we weren’t expecting much. But, wow what an unexpected wonderful experience. The owners of the backpackers were also very helpful, friendly and very knowledgeable about the area on things to do and places to eat etc. We were very impressed by the service and standard of the establishment. I would like to go back again soon!
