As other reviewers have said, this is NOT for tourists. It is for scientists. People have complained about the price, but think about what you are paying for! The employees there were extremely helpful anytime we had an questions, but also thanked us for having read the information they gave us instead of just asking.
My husband and I stayed here for a week on our honeymoon and LOVED it! We met another couple who were also on their honeymoon and they too loved it! It is NOT easy to get to, it is NOT fancy, but it IS in the middle of one of the most endangered and majestic places on Earth.
If you are an experienced, independent traveler, then I can't recommend this more. However, if you prefer more comforts and guided tours (and you have the money), then please, go to the lodge.
Quick Tip: Take your own food and pay for use in the hostel kitchen. The food is quite expensive since they have to bring everything in from so far away.
