                                  Dorm room that we selected was very decent, with heater very welcome. Due to the backpacker-type dorms that form part of the accommodation types available, we assumed that kitchen/cutlery facilities would be available. This turned out to be misplaced. We were able to borrow a few things, but it seemed not to be the norm. Perhaps this sould be made clearer on the listing details re facilities.

                                  This awesome spot just gets better. What a peaceful place- an amazingly comfy bed and yummy breakfast, just what I needed after 3.5 hard days in the berg
