  • This is a small place, but the place is packed full of different species of flowers, not just orchids, and we saw lots of birds there, more so than during our bird watching tour because they are close...  more »
  • I recommend this place as a very pleasant with cool people-hostel with a beautiful garden. Place very clean, modest and very pleasant.

  • We had some expectations higher about this place, but once inside we soon realized that there was much to see. The majority of orchids had not flourished and the others had already dried. If you are in the Valley and you're passionate orchids worthwhile you, otherwise it is not a must-see.
