I stayed here for 4 nights, just kept extending my stay because I couldn't get enough. Dorms are really nice and clean, all with mosquito nets and each set of bunks separated by walls and a sheet door which makes it feel nice and private. Great little lounge area. Well-stoked kitchen. It was nice to be out of the touristy area of Drakes Bay and in the little village of Progresso. Definitely worth paying for their boat transfer service because it is difficult to get there. Or you could hitchhike between Progresso and where the boat drops you, which I did easily a few days after I arrived. Rob and Charlotte are so helpful and can arrange anything you'd like. Even when with them to the village bar to watch the World Cup. I did one of the community based tours and it was excellent!! Hiking through old growth forest - basically a private guided hike. Such a peaceful little respite after being on the road for a while. Highly recommend!
