3 different rooms with 3 different experiences. We arrived here and found no one at reception but it just so happened that she was asleep at the counter. The space outside was great. You could sit and chill even when it got dark. The toilets were good condition and clean and the showers were fine. I really enjoyed my stay.... More

There was a confusion with the bookings (we booked through an agent) and although they couldn't do anything for us on that night as they were completley booked up, when we returned from our tour we were offered a complimentary night with an upgrade into a private room which was amazing. The rooms were clean and the dorms and privates... More

Maybe I was too fussy, but the lodge didn't compare with the YHA on several fronts: location (the YHA is in town, no long hot walk to get to town and no need to carry stuff back), cleanliness (I had room 1 with 2 others. It seemed grimy to me, and as if it was a space desperately seized upon... More

Bedrooms are OK, although heaters are VERY noisy. It's a pity that there is no dining room as it makes breakfasts and dinners not enjoyable at all in winter. Lastly, the kitchen is too small for the number of people who're trying to use it.

Adequate for the price, no disappointments. Be aware of reception working hours as reception was closing at 7 pm. Great opportunity offered to store some luggage at the hostel storage room while going on tours or hiking.

I stayed there two nights. It is a nice hostel, quiet, comfortable. There is a washing machine on the site. Staff is friendly and helpfull. Location of the hostel is not far from the centre, maybe 10 minutes walk.

Booked a double. Obviously duvet cover and blanket not washed. Bathroom not cleaned, paper roll on the ground, one bathroom ceiling falling while showering.... not to mention that you you feel under high surveillance as there are cameras everywhere and wifi service is useless!.

As a backpackers it met what you'd need, a clean bunk, a bit of storage, ample functioning bathrooms, and some fun things to do on site. The walking trails nearby are really cool. The drawbacks were the specific staff I had contact with was not as friendly and customer forward as they ought to be (I get it, they aren't... More
