"all the rooms are well maintained with fans and shelving for storage. Rooms further away from the common areas best for noise reduction."
"If you can afford it go for the Honeymoon cabin."
"Rooms at the rear are the quietest."
"We enjoyed our $40 private room for 2, but the dorm didn't look bad at all! Though I'm sure that depends on who you're sharing with."
"Bring earplugs as tours start early in Drake Bay. So if you go to bed early or need to sleep in when others are getting up earplugs!"
