This guesthouse had been the home for me for 4 months. If I only could I would stay longer. This is the good place for both young people and families. There are diferent kinds of rooms and dorms. There is a bar serving beer, water or coke. Also nice campfire place for the cold evenings. Cute dogs and puppies. Super...

This hostel is probably the worst I have ever stayed at. The beds are uncomfortable and any movement will make a loud screech. Spiders dropped from the roof and mosquitos bite all night. No lockers, no locks, and the front door is kept open all night. The wifi doesn't work, the bathroom is barely more than a gap between the...

It's an old house. The beds are run-down, the bathroom facilities grim, limited and messy, and the ceiling is crumbling and leaking horribly. The house is completely run by (often very kind!) volunteers. They do more than a little desk work; they are expected to clean the toilets, they manage new guests coming in, and prep the rooms - no...

The stuff is very friendly and relaxed, you feel like part of a family. Every evening they have a bonfire where you can drink together and dry your shoes from the hiking. You have to walk about 15 mins from the main road.The Wifi doesn't exists ...it's working if you're lucky, but you can get Wifi at shops on the...

De Native was one of those places that came up time and time again during my travels and every person I met who had stayed there had the same reaction, it was fantastic. As long as you aren't somebody who needs all the mod cons, this place had a wonderful community vibe that more than made up for it's lack...

Had a great stay here with my girlfriend, the accommodation is basic but the staff and campfire/bar is what makes this a great experience :) beautiful location and lovely dogs! The owner told us stories and information around the campfire which was very interesting and made us want to learn and stay longer! Would recommend and stay again :)

With every transaction for accommodation there are a number of features to be factored in such as location, service, food, cleanliness, accessibility to local amenities and attractions. With De Native the total of the whole of these parts gives a much greater package than the mere sum of the individual items. Krish is an excellent host, someone who is running...

We came a little early and the man on staff was very rude to us and wouldn't let us check in. Once it was time to check in he was nowhere to be found. The place was dingy and needed to be cleaned up. However the view was beautiful. Also, the internet didn't work at all for our entire stay.

The atmosphere is really chilled out feels like a hippy place. The staff is nice and personal. Had a pleasant stay and the view walking up the hill past the little temple is really good. Don't worry it's only 10 min away from the centre

I brought my family to stay at this wonderful guesthouse for a third time. Some minor renovations are taking place with the installation of an additional dormitory. The proprietor Krish and his assistants Frank Vos and others were friendly and accommodating. Five friendly dogs made up the great company. The nightly bonfire is a superb time to mingle and share...
