We choose this place based on the website and reviews from other travelers. When we got there, it was nothing like we expected. The room was comparable to a tin demountable that was very small with walls covered in plastic paneling. We were so cold during the the night once temperatures dropped. Internet was not accessible to our room. It was certainly clean and the dining room was lovely. The hosts were personable and friendly but to the extent that it felt slightly intrusive. I think there are nicer rooms judging by the website (and glancing into other rooms walking by) but this was one certainly wasn't on the website and was charged at exactly the same price. It was $120 per night, which I felt steep for what we got. With that said, this place is probably popular due to the lack of available options in the area.
