The Guesthouse of the Samye Monastery is next to the monastery. Most of the guests here are pilgrims who come from all over Tibet to this place. The rooms are basic, about 6 beds to a room, so chances are you have to share with other travelers. There is no heating in the rooms so the nights can be very cold. Every day you get a thermos with hot water. In the courtyard is a tap with cold water for washing and toilets are on every floor.

Toilets in Tibet are very poor. Mostly it is just a few holes in the floor, with no walls between them. So you are right next to your ‘neighbor’. In Samye I saw mice walking up and down the holes in the ground which pose for Toilets. But traveling in Tibet, you get used to this... eventually!
