Didn't like the Pod we were put in when bunkhouse overbooked. It was clean but far away to bring luggage and had no window. We had to choose between stuffy snd midges. The advertised breakfast was one slice of bread and s yogurt. A few scraps of cheddar cheese. No fruit or even a second slice of bread for my companion.
