Lonely Planet review

This backpackers has hit its straps with comfortable new dorms, a fresh toilet block and grassy camping field added to a mix of micro-cabins, al fresco kitchens and barbecue areas. The barn itself is the hub – a communal kitchen and lounge area good for socialising, as is the central deck which has a fireplace. Activity bookings and secure parking available.

Our independent authors have visited The Barn and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Marahau.
