Lonely Planet review

This friendly Quaker-run guesthouse with garden offers clean, well-maintained dorms, though it could use more bathrooms. There are 30 beds in total, including a four-bed room for families ($135 per night). The facility doesn’t require religious observance, but there is a religious theme throughout, and it prefers guests be active in progressive causes.

Rates include continental breakfast. The curious and spiritually minded can rise for the 7:30am worship service.
