The property was comfortable and suitable for our needs. There was no check in as such, rather a note on the door with our name and unit number. It suited me as that's all I really needed to know. The rubbish bin in the kitchen still had the previous guests rubbish in it so the unit didn't feel quite as clean as it could have been. The shower is brilliant and the unit was nice and warm, plus the fridge was quiet. Which in a studio is important.

Thank you for your feedback we appreciate it. I can only apologise for the rubbish bin, that must have been overlooked, at this very quiet time of year we do not man reception 24/7 but happy that you were ok with your check in.

Advertised so nicely online, we arrived only to discover that we weren't staying in the beautiful looking lodge, but instead a small dome type building in a tiny room that barely squuezed single bunk bed and single bed. Room wasn't very clean, beds were very uncomfortable. One powerpoint in the room. Had to pay $5 each for towels. What is probably a great little lodge in the booming winter/ski season, was unclean, uncomfortable and very over priced considering we stayed in off season.

loud place

The walls in the hostel area are paper thin Can hear everyone coming and going, all it takes is one loud group to make this a very uncomfortable stay

Great location, staff and very accomodating.

Pros: We liked that our short notice stay was accomodated at a short time.awesome thai food. Friendly staff and room price was really affordable for a big team.
Cons: It couldve been better if they do more room renovations, and upgrade heating system in rooms.
Location: Very good location for the trip
