    this hostel has a great vibe and friendly staff. the facilities are clean .my room smelled like mold, they put a machine in there to change that but the smell was just too intense and didnt leave. the cabins are a nice idea, but it was really difficult to get my bag to my cabin because of the gravel path that made it impossible to wheel it to the cabin. the cabin was quite a distance away... overrall this is an interesting place in the rainforest.
