Maybe we were just unlucky with the rooms, as other people have mentioned that they had 'comfy beds', but we first stayed in the bunker (shared dorm) and the beds had no cushioning from the wire base, no air con, a window that wouldn't shut, and many insect bites... so after we came back from the trek we booked a private room which had a double bed/air con. You could feel every spring in the mattress and the air con was dripping (what we hope was) water all night, which wouldn't have been so bad but the headboard was covered in plastic so each drip splattered :( Not the comfort you need after a long trek!
Atleast they had wifi, just a pity it only worked in the foyer!
We checked out and went to stay somewhere else with comfy beds..
The shared bathrooms werent very clean but the staff were lovely and helpful!
