Stayed here for one night whilst we visited the caves. The hostel itself is pretty average, reasonable sized living area, reasonable sized kitchen and shower facilities were ok. The location of the hostel in relation to the 'Black Water Rafting Co' is it's situated quite literally at the bottom of the entrance. It is however away from any kind of life and the small town area is situated about 25-30 minute walk away where there is a supermarket and a couple of pubs.
If you want convenience to the Rafting company this is the place for you. If you want a bit of life and don't mind a 10 minute drive in the morning then stay a bit further down the road!
