Summary - very hospitable but slightly basic B&B.
Note: this is only the 2nd B&B I have stayed in, so I am not sure if I am using the right standard to judge the facilities. I know it is very popular among backpackers.
pos - very hospitable, very nice people. I liked enjoyed staying with them.
pos - excellent breakfast, excellent home cooked dinner.
neg - bathroom v basic. have to walk through shower to get to toilet. When you shower, the whole bathroom is wet.
neg - ratio of beds to baths seems high (downstairs 8:1), especially as the shower, toilet and sink are all together and cannot be used separately. I am not sure what is normal here. In any case I was the only guest at the time (winter) so it didn't cause me problems.
neg - they were doing some renovation during off-season so the downstairs dorm where I stayed was not so well organized. Rooms in the upstairs dorm are nicer.
