  • Description


    Hi! It’s Gela and Erish. We’re 2 creative souls who chose to leave the city life and move to Liwliwa. Just like other wanderers, we fell in love with the place the moment we first saw it. It’s a small community with rich character and unique magic in it. Together, we manage our Hostel; which serves as our home for quite some time now.
