Loved this place! I love to be able to sit by a fire and relax in hammock after a long hike up a volcano. The common area is cozy and a great way to meet people. All the workers there are really chill and helpful. I slept out back in a 6 person tent.... and although it was cold getting into bed at night.... I loved it! I love curling up in a bunch of blankets and falling asleep. I wish I could have stayed longer!
