I would write very positive words about the owner,and the view from the therrace.
But in general i didnt like the place at all,i think it was the most unusual place that i have stayed.
Why? Well if you stay here you will know why......
This is not a hostel.There is no common area,no kitchen to use.So if you dont like to go across the lake and pay always for the boat transportation,you will have to buy food from their restaurant.
You cant even drink your own beer on the therrace,because you didnt buy it from them.
The accomodation is in cottages on wooden piles.When you sleep if someone turns in his bed all the house is moving,its bit unstable.There is no glass windows on the walls,only nets so the flyes cant get in,so when you sleep (or trying to) you hear the speaking from the next door.One night it was rainy so all night you hear the rain from the room which is made from i think truck tarps/plastic so no sound proof isolation.There is only 2 bathrooms and showers outside which are common for few cottages each with 3-5 beds. i wake up in 5 am to ask the neighbor to shut down the music that he played loud since 5AM! There is many dogs and roosters that you can hear all night again because "there is no normal windows"
Wi-Fi available only at the resaturant area,not in the sleeping place which is 100m away.At night its very dark,once i felt down because of this on the path which is heading to the cottages. Its cheap place to stay but its not wort the money if you dont have proper sleep. i feel like sleeping in "camp"
