          We spent a night during TMB trek. The place is clean, well maintained and in a great location. The dinner and breakfast were OK, nothing special. We had hot water in the shower only for 1minutes! An awful experience after a long hike.

          Hi, if you don't take the half board, do you have to pay for the showers? If so, what's the price? Also, are there power plugs in the dormitory or common areas to charge cameras, phones and so on? Thanks!
