The rooms are far more modern and clean than in many hotels. I wouldn't call this as a hostel although some rooms have shared bathroom and there is kitchen for everybody's use. That's about it from hostel perspective. Well, the price is from the hostel side too luckily :)
The walk to the downtown Jarabacoa area is 15mins if you walk fast. Taking it a bit more easily and with short legs, it might be all the way to 25mins. We used the bikes (there are two that you can use if others are not using) to go around a little bit. They are in fairly bad condition but we were two fit guys so we managed. They were quite small for us though. Probably made for 160-175cm people.
Molly, the owner, helped us organize necessary tours around the area. We were backpacking and still found very good deals for the money we spent. Molly was always so helpful whenever we needed help.
The main improvement point that I mentioned to Molly is to mark the place to a map in the webpages as the addresses are not found in google maps. And sometimes the street names can be wrong even wrong if they are not completely missing.
I'll definitely go back here if I ever get back to DR.More
