The man was not at the train station despite two emails reminding of our arrival time. It wasn't a big deal, luckily we had enough information and were able to walk to a nearby bar and have him called. He then came 15 minutes later, very nice man. Showed us around the entire apartment and was helpful explaining everything. The place itself was nothing modern, but had all the necessities of a house. The shower was terrible. It was literally a trickle. It would have been better to shower in the sink as this was impossible to get a real shower. The water was also cold which is frusterating because after a long day of hiking you need a good shower! We also were upset as when we went to pay the old man said only cash. It did not say this anywhere else...all we saw was that "we prefer cash" but our credit card was already on file. This caused us to have to go to an ATM and pay the ridiculous fees to take out the money.
