What travellers think
Considering it is a 'wilderness' hostel, it is quite comfortable. Unfortunately, the one thing that bugged me was the lack of lighting for path to toilets and bungalows. Ran into a few trees and a boulder more than once - TAKE A TORCH coz the solar lights do nothing! I loved the fact of no TV or internet - we had no choice but to play cards or board games and the youngies thoroughly enjoyed themselves with no distractions! :-)
