A stiff walk up to the refuge but worth all the sweat. Good food, friendly staff and warm showers which are only on for an hour or so in the early evening. Beds are comfortable with quilts but best to bring your own sleeping bag. The view across Crete and down the gorge are truly amazing. Visited in early October and it was still warm but the temp drops quickly when the sun goes down.
