This refuge was very nice. We made a reservation for dormitory, and got a room in the old building with 5 beds and adjacent bathroom, so we had our privacy. The conditions are rather basic, but rather good - hot water in the shower, pillows and blankets.
Dinner was good, but as it is in all refuges, expensive. Breakfast was standard and good.
We made a reservation months before the date of arrival. Somehow, they thought we are not coming. I would expect them to call/email me and ask, but they simply assumed we are not coming. However, they fixed the mistake within minutes.
Overall, the staff is very nice and helpful.
