When I first arrived at this place it reminded me of the old style guest houses I used to stay in as a child. It seemed to be purpose built as an accommodation, not just a converted house like many hostels. It had a feeling of a cross between a hostel and a guest house.
As previous reviewers said, it still has that 60s-70s decor, but has a cosy atmosphere.
I just stayed one night, and my room was a family room - with double bed, separate room with double bunks; ensuite bathroom and also a handbasin in the main bedroom. Would be great for a family of four. Everything was clean; linen and towels provided. Shower recess could be updated - but okay for just one night (but I also noticed little mould on the bathroom curtains).
Quite a few common areas - TV lounge, dining room (also with lounge and TV area), front balcony and middle courtyard. Breakfast was choice of two cereals, apples and coffee/tea - left for self service. Big kitchen so you can cook your own meals.
This place is listed on Book a Bach, so you can rent the whole place out - would be good for large groups and families. Walking distance to main shopping area, bus station but also a local supermarket/green grocer and butcher only 5 mins walk away. Walking distance to lake (view of the lake from front balcony).
Nothing fancy about this place, but good location, and good value for money.
