I could not agree more. What I have noticed in the 5 years I have been open is, the "backpackers" all follow their Lonely Planet books for ideas so they all end up at the same places instead of going and trying something that is not in the book. The hotel crowd goes to the visitors center and the hostel crowd has their guide books. They(the hostel and hotel crowd) are the same they just have a different way of going about things. Thats my two cents worth.
