The dorm is a lovely building close to the yoga studio equipped to sleep 6 female guests. The dorm has a shared bathroom located 100 meters away in a separate building.

Given its level of simplicity, we want to make sure that the dorm is going to be the right fit for you. Please review this link to view more photos of the facilities.
