The place has a great potential, the surroundings are excellent and beautiful. But most of the staff was unhelpful and unprofessional. Poor, poor information about trips and things to do in the area. We were tempted to stay 3 nights (pay 2 night, get 3rd for free), but left after 2 nights. If you do not have your own car, shuttles from the hostel is very expensive.
We brought out own food, because there is only a small supermarket and not a lot of restaurants in the village. Unfortunately the kitchen was disgusting, with left overs from weeks and not single clean pot or pan to use. Must of the mess was from the staff themselves.
Charles, was a great member of the staff, professional, helpful and friendly. The Black Water Tubing that he organizes is great and the crew gives you a nice experience.
