We now welcome hostellers travelling with dogs. They're only allowed in private rooms or camping, for an additional $10/night.We make every possible effort we can at the moment towards sustainability. In addition to CFL light bulbs, we use rain-harvested water to wash laundry in biodegradable soap, and to supply water for our solar-heated outdoor shower. The food composted from our kitchen goes into our organic gardens that provide the harvest for meals at the hostel. Bathrooms are cleaned in all-natural cleansers, any plastic bags that come in are reused to line trash cans and we recycle tons of cardboard, plastic, metal and glass each year to minimize our effects on the environment.Please note that all children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent.
