Great stay
We had a very nice stay at Lava House Hostel. Isabel, the owner, is incredibly sweet and did everything possible to make us comfortable, despite our language barrier. The location of the hotel is a bit removed from the center of town, but about a 15 minute walk to the Port. Being off the main road led to a quiet night's sleep every night, but we didn't factor in the need to carry our bags down to the port to transfer between islands (our fault!). We also tried to pay by credit card, but their machine wasn't working, so we ended up spending most of our cash on our stay. My card worked fine elsewhere on the island, so I would be prepared to have some extra cash on hand if staying here. Otherwise the accommodations are just as pictured online.
