The location of the hostel is good, though I arrived on the train and travelled with a heavy bag. The distance to walk is fine (similar to what I've experienced with other hostels), but the hill was a bugger with the bag.
I experienced a major failure in trying to book the adventure package. The online booking for the package wasn't working so I emailed to make arrangements. After 2months of emails, they couldn't get the booking completed. 2months! The reason was unclear and even upon arrival they seemed confused as to what was going on. But, they were very nice and once there, very helpful. So... Don't rely on email communications and you'll be fine.
