Solicitamos una habitación individual y nos derivaron a la "posada del viajero B&B". La posada es espectacular en cuanto a las habitaciones, el l personal y el cuantioso desayuno. Del hostel utilizamos la cocina y la sala común. El personal es muy atento y la sala común con chimenea es muy acogedora y llena de posibilidades. La cocina es algo pequeña si se juntan varias personas que quieren cocinar a la vez. Pero siempre está muy limpua gracias al personal de limpieza.

I enjoyed my stay. My only real negative was the asado, which I wouldn't recommend. I've had a few before at other hostels, and they just keep bringing out different cuts of meat. This time there were only two. And they weren't good. They were full of fat. I wish I didn't eat it let alone pay to eat it. But my bed was comfy and breakfast was good.

Faltou um box de acrilico, já que com a cortina de plástico o banheiro molha inteiro. O ar condicionado parou de funcionar no meio da noite e passamos muito frio, foi a chave que caiu.
