Very nice backpackers with an affordable camping option (vehicle camping is just in the car park but there is a secure gate). Dorms 160pp, camping 80pp. Kitchen, strong hot showers, free WiFi, very nice lounge and dining area with fire in the winter evenings, cute garden with seats and braai/fire, and a bar to buy drinks. Very welcoming staff.

A three star camping 6 Km from Kranjska Gora. It is all you can expect from a camping. It is clean and quiet and the view is magnificent. There is also a climbing wall, a store and a play ground for kids. There are a lot of bike routes and hiking routes here.
PS 25% off for motorcyclists.

Fantastic Chevy garage! Raphael still works here and speaks English. We brought our Silverado 2509 duramax diesel here and got new shocks, oil change, oil filter and fuel filter (we brought this from home) changed here. The work took half a day which we had to split into two days because they close for their siesta mid day. Employees were great! Recommended if you have a Chevy.

Mario (+264 81 146055, Deutsch, Afrikaans, English) and his team saved our trip!
1800 km and 10 days away from Capetown and our flight back home the clutch of my BMW was broken. Mario fetched me out of the desert and brought me back to Swakopmund. The Garage is Yamaha but they do all makes. Also very good range of tires and oils (... yes, even real motorbike oil...).
Within two days of perfect support we even found a used clutch in Swakopmund so I had not to wait for the spare parts!
We came stranded and we left as friends!

They stopped us here to register our title and check our passports. The police guy jay stopped us was trying to emphasis that our road lights were not on, but they were on. Because we have a truck our lights are positioned on the bumper, so he thought we had our fog lights on not the road lights on. We had to explain that in Europe is works like this. He added that we need to comply with Argentinian law, but soon passed as my husband responded very confident we are compliant.

Well allot has changed in a year!!!
We were travelling 2 up on our motorbike and at least there was good parking for the bike. The price is now 17pp usd for a doube bed and private bath......the room was not big enough to swing a cat.....maybe a guinea pig. The shower was only luke warm and there was mould and old shampoo wrappers in it......the bed was super comfy with good sheets. It was a bit noiesy and staff were friendly. Price included breakfast which consisted of the worst coffee we have ever had, a single bread roll with butter and spread. Yes it is right in centro which could be a plus......overall not our best hotel experience

This hotel was the only one opened on July. Nice apartments with private kitchen and bathroom. A/C with heater. Could take our bicycles inside. Paid 800 pesos but not sure about high season price. Must be beautiful in summer here.

Follow a dirt service road between a couple of glacier lakes, a few places to camp on the knoll before dropping down. The track continues to the little dam. Stunning views of mountains, lakes and glaciers.

Very reasonable - cost by weight. Clothes in at 1400hrs, told to collect at 1700hrs.
Note, there are TWO 'Unidad Educativa Otavalo', the lavandaria is one block south of Santa Fe Hostal. It's a long walk if you head to the college at the northern end of town!

We didn't like this place to much. The cappuccino we ordered was more like an Americano with to much water and a bit of milk on top. Wouldn't recommend going here for good cappuccino!

We basically drove all around town and this place was able to sell us a 5kg gasbottle for our stove. We already bought a Ecuadorian connection for 8$ at a ferreteria, so good solution in case your in need!

A small campsite built in an old sand quarry, right by a river.
It caters primary to fisher, but I find it to be perfect for overlanders who need a night with access to a shower and 230V power.
The proprietor can be contacted by telephone, the site has a simple website with the info. Payment primary in cash.

Awesome spot by the creek with lake views. Only concern is the posting of a no overnight camping sign.

Indeed a very nice place, peaceful and welcoming. If no one is around, just wait a bit or try to call: +1 360 4615394
The sites are lovely set, most of them with fire pit and new benches/tables. All widely spread on a sunny lawn surrounded by dense forest. Shower and toilet work perfectly fine and are located near the entrance. WiFi even reaches the spots in the back. Recommendable and incredible cheep for what you get & they do have availability, even on the 4th of July.
