I went for one night only, but the check out was supposed to be at 12. I was scheduled to be canyoning until 12:30. The front desk guy said it would be fine if I checked out by around 1. There was a fire which was nice to drink around at night and another side has a tv. There are hammocks which I relaxed with a bag of juice in during the morning. The people who work there did not speak English well. I do not consider this a bad thing. I enjoyed having to try to communicate in the language of the country I am in. At a burger shop pretty much across the street they have quite possibly the best fries in Ecuador. Lastly there is a discount for geotours which isn't the cheapest tours but the gear that they had was better than some of the others.
