We arrived and the hostel parent was not able to be reached, even I left 2 messages. Due that I had a reservation and the first time there I wasn't sure what I had to do. After the owner showed me where to go we checked out the cabin. It was dirty and not vacuumed. The shower had hair from the previous renters and spiders all over. We were glad we had our own sleeping bags. And with the quiet hours I didn't work out as well we still had noisy people at 11:30pm. For the service and cleanliness it is overpriced.
