We stayed here for two nights on the island. Its a fine central location. They charged use as if we were sleeping in a hammock but we slept in our camper-van. There is no camping but inside a camper is fine as they have Monkeys and small Deer in the car-park. The car-park is large enough for a couple of cars and the facilities are all there just like any hostel. It was $3.5 each. Stay AWAY from the monkeys as they bit my friend on his hand. All the animals are rescued according to the owner so are wild and will be released eventually.
The beers are $2 for a liter and the breakfasts were good. We ate elsewhere in the evenings although my wife did eat Mac & Chili and it was OK but a smallish portion.
This place is also called by a different name and its been painted so looks different. They speak limited English but enough to help. Our friend slept in the dorm and complained about mosquito's. They have no nets. Take a sleeping bag liner and spray before going to bed. The location wasn't too noisy and the owner even asked if the music from the bar needed turning down at night. The noise came from across the road more than the her bar.
I would stay again. The Wi-Fi was fast enough and worked in all areas.
