Pros: Being an American, this experience was really different than anything I'm used to.

We saw aurora borealis from their driveway, which was the highlight of our trip. Free wifi as well.
Cons: We were told that we would have a private bathroom, but we ended up gettingn a shared bathroom. Not a big deal as the bathroom was clean and there was a sink in our room.
