Simple but amazing guest house. What really made a difference was jay. She gave us great advice and were always nice and helpful. If you like hiking we would recommend doing the hikes on your own instead of hiring a guide and also visiting during the week where there are fewer tourists.

We were welcomed by the excellent owner upon arrival. The place is clean, quiet and friendly and good value for money, we stayed in an en suite room which was very nice but the other rooms only share a bathroom between 2 rooms so no real issue. There are nice shared areas in each of the accommodation blocks with kitchen... More

Stayed here for just one night for exploring some places around. The hostess is really nice and helpful and even that we only stayed for just a night she gave us a lot of useful information on surroundings and possibilities (e.g. the best restaurant of the city which I will review separately). The room we had was small but nice... More

This was such a nice surprise. The host and the other guests were all so helpful. No pressure to buy trips but good information. Very welcoming and knowledgeable about traveling many places. The extra touches were appreciated. Hair dryer, charging areas, coffee/tea 24 hours and even home cooked treats! The ride to the bus station was so unexpected, but very... More

We arrived late, but jay, our host, was there to meet us. The room was clean and spacious and we had our own private bathroom. Jay was very nice, she let us freshen ourselves before check in and proceeded to advice us on travellers' favorites places to eat (lovely recommendations btw). I had also prebooked a tour the next day... More

I stayed there for 2 nights right on school holidays so ended up not having water to shower. I had to use my drinking water for tooth brushing and face washing, then walk to Father's guesthouse to take a shower. Wasn't an annoying thing but the guesthouse should've had a temporary solution. The guesthouse is in Greenhill resort place, quiet... More
