New York, New York

The six rooms are on the basic side, but agreeably so (think of it as going to a friend's cottage -- staying here is like that). They all have mosquito nets over the doubles, hammocks out on the balconies, bathrooms with showers. Only drawback: there's no warm water, which is a bit of a problem if you're trying to soothe sore muscels after a long hike. (I think there are plans to change this).
The best parts are the cosy sitting room, with its hardwood floors and comfy sofas for reading (if you don't have your own, you can grab one from the communal bookcase), and the communal kitchen. Guests can eat anything out of the fridge, and if you arrive, like I did, when an impromptu meal is being served, you'll likely be asked to join in.
Bobby can also arrange terrific guides for you that have access to a 4X4. This helps, as you'll be taken to out of the way places you wouldn't be able to get to on your own.
