**To participate in any of our courses or for lodging at the Eco Hostel, you must receive a confirmation in advance. Same day reservations are possible, only if we have available spaces. Please make sure to receive a confirmation via email or phone before heading our way.
In keeping with our goal of living a simple life, we do not rush to check our email constantly and give priority to in-person communication. So please give us at least a day to respond. If you do not hear back from us immediately, rest assured that we will respond soon. We just need to make sure that the students have learned, and the goats are fed first. ☺
*We are also enjoying life and not at the computer all the time.
