This is a small village in a small town in Georgia. A toilet inside the house is already considered a luxury since a lot of the houses still has outhouses. If you wish to have a more European standard, you can opt to book in hotels as these are family houses that the village people converted to guesthouses. You are in the mountains in the former Soviet Union country. Adjust your expectations.
People are generally friendlier in this village than in the cities (like most cities do). It's the priceless experience of living with the people here that a lot of the guests put value to. Not much of the material things that the place could offer. So go ahead. Enjoy more of nature.
