Hey! Did anyone stay in there accommodation whilst diving? It's called Og's pension, can't seem to find out much about it online. What were the rooms like? Do you have any photos? Thinking of booking a double fan room; if anyone has stayed in one of those rooms it would be great to hear their experience! Also is there a swimming pool there that guests can use?
