For those hiking up, there are rooms available at the monastery if you want to stay overnight. Rooms are Spartan dormitory-style, with 6 reasonably-comfortable beds per room. They open onto a wide balcony overlooking the church and courtyard. There’s a very nice communal kitchen and a single shared bathroom (2 toilets, 2 sinks, no showers). When I was there, about 10 people were staying, but I was told the average during the regular season is about 50. I think there are beds for more than that.
There’s no charge to stay, but you can leave a donation at the church altar (or, for larger amounts, hand it to the priest’s assistant). There’s no pressure to leave anything. This means there are limited funds for maintaining the facility and for providing some of the basics – you will need to bring and cook your own food, and you might want to bring your own towel (there are some communal hand towels), and TP (might be there, might not be). There is water, but it is also somewhat limited, so try to bring enough yourself and use what’s there sparingly.
I suppose you can stay at the inn as long as you like, provided you follow the rules and show respect for your fellow guests. There are quiet hours (about 9pm until gates open at 7am), and you have to clean up after yourself. It’s beautiful on the edges of the day, and it’s peaceful.
Phone and email are provided from the Brandt Travel Guide, although when I wrote I never heard back from anyone.
