This place was the perfect home in the mountains 5 years ago. It still is as authentic, homey and relax. No surprise, the view is still as magnificent and even if Wally the dog aged a bit, he still is the best dog in the universe. As always, book more than one night, you will stay longer anyway.

Upon being greeted by a friendly dog, Wally, on arrival, I knew this place would be great. Dan the hostel manager then made me feel right at home, providing a solid induction and helpful tips on where to eat, where to shop and where to hike. There are good hikes to complete from the hostel too. This hostel is perfect... More

Booked for one week and stayed for two! Great place to base yourself for hiking and for relaxing/recovering from hiking! Manager is very helpful guy who will patiently explain where to go and how to get there in terms of both exploring the area and onward travels

Very friendly staff, unbelievable location, brilliant atmosphere. Dan, the manager knew everything about the local area. We had a great time hiking and chilling out in the hostel. Come here if you want to play with Wally dogster and have the sickest time.

I've stayed in many a hostel over my years of travel, and I really appreciated the friendly feel of being at the Ginger Monkey. The staff (especially Dan) did a fine job of setting a welcoming atmosphere, and for some reason, (while I was there at least), it seems to attract those guests who are themselves warm, friendly, cheerful.
