Me alojé aquí con mi hermana ambos lados de nuestra caminata a Roraima en Feb2012. este lugar era increíble! es probablemente la mejor posada/hostal en el que me he alojado. está muy bien decorado, la gente es genial, la comida era genial, y hay incluso agua caliente (el agua caliente que tuvimos durante las 2 semanas en Venezuela). Gracias a Erik de Backpacker Tours, que hizo que nuestro viaje a Venezuela especial. si estás trekking Roraima - estancia aquí!
