The Annapurna Circuit is a “tea house” to “tea house” trek.  Originally, people camped along the trail and visited the small tea houses like the ones in the first few photos.  Many of the trekkers started to sleep on the floors and benches (photo 3) in the common area.  As the tea house owners made money, they were able to build guesthouses. It can be single storied or multiple stories. Many have squat and seated toilets. The showers are either gas or solar heated. The bedrooms have 2 or 3 beds, usually 2 singles or possibly a double and a single bed. There is usually a shelf and perhaps a few nails in the wall to hang items.  The curtains were more for decoration than for warmth or privacy.  Since there were few trekkers while I was there, there were blankets available to all of us.   The rooms were always well kept.  It always felt safe to sleep.
