We stayed here on our TMB trip. The room was freezing and there was no heating, the food was very basic and tasteless. Bread in the morning for breakfast was extremely hard, as if it had been left out from the night before to go stale. The showers were run with a coin machine. This would be fine, however the coin machine was outside of your cubicle so you had to insert before being unable to get undressed. There was then no where to put your clothes whilst showering! The best part of the stay was the view from the balcony.
One of the wrost refuge along tmb water is limited to 4 minuts (starts from the momemt you put the coin) no light in the rooms poor breakfast almost the same price as the fabulos elizabeta and bunati refuge i would skeep this refuge as most trackers do
We stayed here while hiking the TMB, and enjoyed it. The views up here are amazing! The staff were friendly. It was full when we stayed, but they still got dinner out to all the tables quickly and the food was great. The rooms were on par with other hostels on the trail - room for all of our gear and a decent bed.
This place is ok. The showers are now working which is a bonus. Rooms were small but comfortable. Views are amazing when weather allows. Staff are nice, there's strict rules alloy being quiet after 9 which we found a bit boring. You do have to queue a long time for the shower dinner was ok, it was beef which was a bit tough and cheese polenta. Breakfast was choas. We had to get bread and orange juice of other people's tables etc as not enough I had two bits of bread, not enough to fuel a day hiking. There's porridge but unsure how your supposed to cook it? Great location for sunrise
The attitude of the people in this refuge is unbelievable: it's as if they are doing you a favor allowing you to pay them to stay there. There is no service, just rudeness. Getting there requires quite a climb, which is Ok - this is why you do the TMB - but there's hardly any view worth mentioning. If you have a choice, go for any other refuge in the vicinity.
