Brilliant location - handy for a stroll to the Main Street, supermarket, restaurants and the lake. We stayed in a private double room with ensuite for the first half of our stay. The bed was comfy and we had new towels and shampoo/soap etc everyday. The second half of our stay was in a four bed dorm- no towels or... More

We were here for two nights. Staff helped us recover lost baggage from the airport (involved a LOT of phone calls). Central hostel, and very good prices for local attractions. Bathrooms are clean and have hot water all day long.

Stumbled upon this gem while perusing over priced mid range hotels, which were mainly turning us away for full occupancy. To my great surprise there were affordable dorm beds available here. Our only complaint was the poor condition of the common use kitchen which wanted for cookware and featured 2 out of 8 burners functioning. All in all a total... More

We had a nice and spacious room with enough plugs to charge all our electrical devices. We stayed in the new part of the hostel, which was nicely up to date. Too bad the dogs on the street and some young folk in the early hours of the morning woke us up regularly, but well. Close to the main street... More

It looks good. Rooms and bed are in good condtion. Bathroom is not very clean but it is okay to use. Third, breakfast is great... More

Room is very nice, with floor heating. Even in the dead of winter the room is warm. Also enough place to sit outside the room, if you need to work or whatever you want to do. Breakfast in the restaurant. Buffet. Better than most places, but hey, most places only serve a micro croissant with a cup of coffee. Staff... More

It was reasonable prices with a HI discount card. The rooms were clean and the barrooms where fine. The breakfast included was also good. The wifi is terrible though. Staff were helpful though and it's in a nice location. I would recommend a stay here.

This hostel looks good but needs to improve a lot of details. The staff was very helpful but gave us a wrong pick up hour for a tour. We got up at 5am but when we showed up at breakfast, the kitchen staff laughed at us and told us the pick up wasn't until 6am. The room had a terrace... More
