We stayed here only because I really wanted to see more of those penguins on the beach. I wish we hadn't. The rooms are dirty - I don't know when the last time was that they swept the floor. Shared coed bathrooms are okay, not terrible but not great. Reception is not friendly. The building is very poorly constructed and we could hear everything going on outside our room - it's really noisy. I think you have to pay for the internet, but we couldn't get it to work with our laptop anyway (using their cable). Wouldn't recommend it.
