This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The staff were friendly, helpful and patient with our endless queries.
There could be a bit more help with organising trips. Buses are sometimes a bit difficult to find. Our double room was great with a really big bed. Dorms and toilets ok. The food was good. A happy place to stay!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Overall, this place rocks. Its a solid stay with a great staff, pretty good eats, but best of all, a killer vibe. The water was out for one day while I was there, but I barely noticed! Don't know what this says about my hygiene, but you won't be disappointed with Cloudland, for sure.
