I first visited Easter Island in 2003 and prices were very reasonable then. What a change a decade makes and now everything is very expensive, especially if you've come from say Peru or Bolivia. The host Carmen speaks little English and once you're in your room, you won't see much of her except perhaps at breakfast. One morning I woke up very early to catch sunrise at Ahu Tongariki and Carmen had prepared a cooler box with my breakfast all ready for me to take.
The room was basic but clean and very quiet. The only downside is the location is a bit of a walk from the town centre. If you can't get a taxi back in the evening then it's a 15 minute walk along the road, which is safe even very late at night but it's unlit, so use your phone's flashlight app if you can.
WiFi access is almost non-existent on the island although it works reasonably well at the airport. for tours and car hire I used Kia Koe on the main street - they were very good and well priced too.
