Great location on the lake and wonderful views. We stayed in the regular refugio, which meant at we were crammed into a small room with triple decker bunks-nine people per room. Dinner was very good, with a nice stew and great cake dessert. Staff were pleasant, at least the ones I dealt with.
The problems included dirty bathrooms and hallways and staff non-existent to monitor guest activities. A large tour group arrived, with the women taking over the two available sinks in the women's washroom to wash socks and underwear. They then hung all of them over the large wood heater at the end of the corridor outside our room. They strung up lines and also used their hiking poles to create additional space. At regular intervals in the night, (up to 11:30 pm when I fell asleep), they'd come out to check on their clothing. They would move the poles up and down on the wall, creating loud scraping noises in our room which was on the opposite side. Yikes! Staff were no where to be seen, and only re-appeared at 7:30 am when the electricity came back on.
It was ironic that the place that was the dirtiest of the refugios we stayed was the only one that required us to take off our boots going in.More
