Le cadre est très agréable, en pleine nature. Une fenêtre dans la douche des filles aurait été appréciée.

La ubicación es magnífica, rodeado de vegetación, aunque quizá demasiado alejada del pueblo. Nos resultó muy extraño que, habiendo pagado por el desayuno que ofrece el albergue (que no está incluido en el precio del alojamiento), tuviésemos que lavar nosotros la vajilla empleada!
