Even though there's no wash facilities I totally loved this place. Good kitchen facilities, common room, comfy bed with lots of blankets and the toilets are new and in good condition. Everything is well maintained and the location is just amazing.
The only thing I wish it had was an area to wash/clean your teeth that wasnt the kitchen. Washing in the creek was ok (although freezing!!!) in fact made the experience but an outside basin area to wash would have been helpful.
Didnt get to experience the sauna but everyone said it was really good.
One tip - go over the road and up the river a little way. You'll find a great waterfall
