This is easy... This hostel is AMAZING!!!!! A coffee farm, with a hostel in an old rustic barn... Restaurant and bar, hammocks, TONS of rooms... $2.50 dorm, $10 private... This hostel sits at the Base of Volcan Maderas, so you walk out the door and straight up the volacano...
Cheap food, COOOOLLLLLDDDDDD showers, but worth it...
Vegetarain friendly...
The view from this place and the ambience is what it ALLLL about!!!
This hostel is a must.....

Yeah hot showers were a luxury in Peru and Bolivia. Although a lot of places put these death-trap electric heaters on the shower head, which gives you a trickle of just somewhat cold water instead of freezing ass cold water.

That was 3 years ago, I'm curious to see if there's any difference later this year

Thanks for the review Marc

That's actually a pretty good solution. I know last summer, in Madrid, all I took was cool showers.
