If you want budget accommodation, then this is it! I have never stayed in a hostel before (!) and was expecting a lot worse I have to say. I was in a shared, single-sex dorm. The dorm itself was filled with bunk beds and lockers. The beds themselves were clean and freshly laundered. In the dorm there are two shared showers (which again were clean and private) and also a row of three lavatories (these kept leaking, so wear shoes if you need the toilet in the night!)
The facilities included a great bar/restaurant, and as an English person, I was delighted that they served Cider at the bar! The bar/restaurant is made of wood and is really cosy with a big log fire, lots of tables, games to play, acoustic guitar, good music playing, etc. There is a good selection of food, but it is a little pricey in my opinion. (The granola and yogurt was the cheapest breakfast option and was tasty.)
As I'm aware there are more 'luxurious' and private accommodation, but I only saw the private tent and one of these had a spiders nest in, so I preferred to stay in the dorm! There is also a hot tub apparently, but I didn't get time to use it.
You can also buy all sorts of things from the front desk shop, including towels, bug spray, tooth paste, etc etc.
