As mentioned in other reviews, the rooms were comfortable, water was hot, free breakfast + coffee were good, staff was friendly and helpful, and prices were very low (I paid $8 per night for a dorm bed). I would stay there again.
HOWEVER I wish the staff treated us less like a walking dollar sign. Before we had a chance to unpack and take a shower, the staff was already pitching us to do ziplining and guided hikes. There were definitely a few other times during our stay when I felt like I was being upsold. I definitely understand that hotels and travel agents make commissions by booking events for their guests, but the folks here need to ease off a bit.
