Loved it, however be aware this is truly remote and off-grid. The town has no real restaurant (buy fried chicken from a stall). The Hostel is only known locally as IDEAC. Its owned by a co-operative, locally I believe. VERY simple and basic. Had cold water 2hrs in evening, then cut. Electricity all times. US$15 private room, shared bathroom. I was the only guest. Quite a foreboding looking place however the Spanish guy looking after it, whilst appearing stern, showed me town and made me great coffee and gave a tour of their plantation. No bells-and-whistles here though. Evening walk in town is great, the stores are open and everyone is hanging around. I enjoyed the no-frills authenticity
