A hotel with a hostel-like feel. This is the second time I've stayed at Hotel Dorothy. First time was in 2010 with my mom and it was absolutely wonderful. I travel on a budget at this time around it cost $22/night total for 2 people. The rooms are very basic: bed(s), fans, end table, bathroom and open closet to put your luggage. The first room we were put in was downstairs in the back, right. This was not an ideal room. It did have a window, but the view was the wall of the next building. There is no need for A/C in the area, it is quite cool...but this room was muggy with no circulation. We asked to be moved upstairs the next day and we got room #18. WONDERFUL room! It was bright and cheery, the window opened up to a beautiful view of the volcano, the room was nice and cool and had a much nice bathroom. Ask for an upstairs room when you check in.
They have a great communal kitchen area with a fridge, sink, stove, filtered water etc. There is awesome porch area with rocking chairs and a picnic table where you can look out onto the volcano and also pick up the wifi ;)
