Mike is a real stand up guy. He's always got a smile on his face and is very welcoming when you get there. After I walked in with my backpack, he showed me to my bed. The are regular bunk beds, but the rooms are small, so there is little room to maneuver around. I got one closer to the...

Mike is a very nice host who speaks good english and...
