Room with old design (small CRT TV) but we enjoy the great mountain view. The hotel heater works great & make us feel comfortable in cold day. Kitchen is a joke compare to BBH. Pans & pots looks terrible. We dont feel comfortable to cook.
Doesn't worth the price. Moreover, it's written that there is a free wifi but it's not true, it's 4$ for 24hours. When you pay this price you expect having internet at least. The kitchen is very bad too : only 1 knife for all the backpacker and no salt, no coffee, no tea as you find in almost every backpackers.
The kitchen equipment is a practical joke. One single
We greatly enjoyed the hospitality and friendliness of the staff. The food was fantastic but it took a while to prepare. We will definitely come back. A little bit disappointed that the room was not ready on time.

Had a bath in the dorm ensuite which was a nice bonus. However the cafe was really slow had to wait an hour and a half for some bland expensive fish and chips! So be advised bring your own food too cook.
Great place to stay especially after long hikes and climbs. Food in the restaurant and bar was great! It's in a remote location so don't expect Atm machines or shops selling groceries etc in the vicinity, before you arrive. Highly recommend this place. Never woken up to such amazing views!
