I just returned from a week-long trip to Rapa Nui, and stayed the entire time at Camping. I found Marta and Roger at the airport (though I emailed in advance and received no response), and they happily drove my partner and me back to the campsite and explained in Spanish (broken English a possibility; Roger's French seems strong) all of the offerings and rules, etc. To camp is very cheap, probably the best official deal on the island, though residenciales and homestays are undoubtedly more rewarding. Anyways, the crowd at Camping was friendly the entire time, and Marta and Roger are usually very helpful. If you are planning to tour around the island make sure to ask them about car rentals - they might be able to find you a deal.
We were assigned to a nice cupboard in the cooking area, which was clean and tidy. Outside however, roaches do come out pretty heavily at night, though I've never seen them in any of the buildings.
Wifi was always accessible, though brutally slow - to the point where I would maybe suggest finding a different place to send emails or check Facebook, w/e.
As others have said, the view of the ocean is unbelievable. You would be hard-pressed to find a place to stay with a better view on Rapa Nui. Lights are pretty bright in Hanga Roa at night, though. I brought one of the blindfolds from my LAN flight to use and it was helpful. Also, clean showers and bathrooms with reliable hot water!
