We do recommend this place, but you should know that it's hard to find, there is very little English spoken and there are no shops or markets in the area. Breakfast was very simple and the coffee was weak. Also, the Wi-Fi didn't work in our room, so if we wanted to be online, we had to sit in a cold lobby area. Still, that's part of the charm of staying here: you're in a rustic guesthouse in a really isolated area with fantastic hiking and gorgeous views. While it had its shortcomings, you probably won't find a better hotel in this isolated area. Despite all the challenges, it's definitely worth the effort. Tip: there are at least two roads that lead to Koukouli. Each Ends at a different end of town and neither goes through town. One of them ends right at Nicholas guest house. If you find yourself on the other road at the other end of town, go back the way you came and take the other road into town.
