Really amazing if you are looking for a relaxing place surrounded by nature. The beach is just 10 mins away walking. Karin has been very kind. I would definately recommend it.

. It's a bit out of Las Galeras, make sure you find it on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps (don't use the Airbnb location), but very easy to get to and from town walking or by moto. Very chill, comfortable atmosphere, and affordable if you're backpacking.

Great place where is possible meet different people from different places. Exchange experience and make new friends. This place are not for everybody. If you like jungle, than the La Hacienda is place for you. Everybody can see lots of spiders, lizards, cats, dogs, cocks, horses, mango, frogs.... you live in touch with nature all time. Karin thanks for this unique place. If I come again in DR - your place will be first and maybe last on my visit list.

The discription of La Hacienda says it all, a nice quiet hostel in the outskirts of Las Galeras. La Hacienda is as much an hostel for people as for animal, it gave me great joy to see that Karin (and companions) took such good care of the recue animals. La Hacienda had all the basics nothing more nothing less. Its one of the best hiking places in DR, with some amazing hidden caves and beaches. Definitely recommended.

La Hacienda is a haven tucked away in the hills of Las Galeras far enough from the tourists but close enough to walk to town and local beaches. This hostel feels just like home. We all shared meals together, everyone taking turn to cook and clean. Karin and her friend Pauline were wonderful hosts! So kind and welcoming. So helpful with anything we needed. The outdoor kitchen is a pleasant area to hang out, cook, and share travel stories. I only wish I had arrived earlier and could have stayed longer. I will remember Hacienda fondly.

Karin est la delicatesse meme. Elle sait vous mettre à l aise, veiller à votre intimité, encourager la communicationavec les autres hotes, et vous renseigner pour que votre sejour reponde a vos attentes. Le cadre est reposant et la vue sur la mer et sur les petitsonts est appreciable.

I am originally from Belgium, live an work for many years now in the Dominican Republic. My house "La Hacienda hostel" is located in the countryside three and half miles from Las Galeras. Just on the edge of Cabo Samana National Park. I love animals and have 10 horses which I rent to tourists for making beautiful excursions in nature.
