5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2010

As soon as i arrived here (on my own) i was greeted by friendly staff and shown to a dorm - luckly got the last bed...
there was already a group of travellers there, very familiar with the staff and asked i wanted to join them going out that evening.. which i did to no regret, perfect place to eat, drink and enjoy the weather.
Sorted laundry out no problem, gave clean towels couldnt have asked for better!
