We had put down a $50 dollar deposit. We arrived and they tried to charge us $30/each + breakfast. That is about half of the advertised rate on their website. We had to show them an argue for 30 minutes to get the posted rates. Then breakfast was another $3.00/each. The hotel was drab & very cold. No wood for the fireplace. There are other hostels in the area which offer a better value. Do not stay here, if you do prepare to overpay.
The bed was comfortable and had many blankets. The screaming child that lives with the caretakers was not a welcome sound at 5-6am. He also likes to slam doors.
Coturpa is also 2 km downhill from the nice baths, there were no taxis or anyway to get up there. So if you are not driving be prepared for a good hike uphill.
