          A good option to stay in. The lady on reception was delightful and couldn't have made us feel more welcome. The social areas are good. The rooms are different - I think it must have been an old motel from its set up. No bunk...More

          Awesome hostel super close to everything in town and on the edge of a beautiful lake. The stoves and showers didn't work very well, but they did the trick. Big dorm rooms and awesome common areas. Definitely would stay here again.
