I just loved this place.
I just loved this place. it was quiet, tucked in the rainforest, my type of place. The rooms were basic but adequate. I felt perfectly safe and the staff were most obliging. Organised tours efficiently. Nothing was too much trouble. Great experience. Would do this again.

A good place for backpackers
insect screens and better plumbing would be a good improvement. We also had a large window with a very bright external light shining through over us and had no way of turning this off. You get what you pay for I guess. The people working there were very good & friendly. A good place for backpackers I think.
