This hut is great for the hikers. There is a lot of trails from there, the lodge is clean and have basic facilites. Of course this is a mountain hut so you there are some rules like quite hours at 10pm etc. But it's standard for hikers who wants to get up early and git the trail. The only minus are the toilets. There are only 2 for 28 people so sometimes it's getting busy. Also you can get there passing through the big room so whoever wants to use it and sleeps in the small room has to go through the big room very often waking up others. I love the porch!
