The room was very clean and the owner was helpful and knowledgeable, gave great recommendations for hikes and where to eat.
The WiFi is free for a limited amount only, and WiFi doesn't always work.
We wish we had a microwave in the room, but didn't. It would have saved us another meal in the only supermarket, which is limited and expensive.
The towel heating rack in the bathroom was a great bonus!
