This review is mostly about the hut:
+ Warm welcome from the host
+ Nice campspots for people with tents
+ The walk up...with all your stuff
+ Plenty of room for canoes
+ Big kitchen with gasstove
+ Everyone seems friendly and helpfull

- Bad ventilation considering the amount of sleepers
- Toilet-amonia-smell was breathtaking and not in a good way
+/- Bring earplugs, some people snore ;)
