Pour les qualités rustiques de l'auberge, cette dernière est très bien tenue. Les services sont moins nombreux que dans d'autres auberges, dues aux conditions environnementales l'auberge (pas d'eau courante, pas d'électricité) mais c'est une très bonne auberge. La tenante actuelle en été 2019 (Camille) est adorable et très accueillante ! Je recommande ce lieu ;)
