Great place to stay, though at first I thought it was a bit pricey to pitch my tent in the backyard. It ended up being worth it, largely due to the late 19th Century box grand piano!!! What a treat to get to play such a rare instrument. The Bach was okay, but that piano's really meant to play CHOPIN on.... If you play, definitely check out this hostel. Kitchen and accommodations are all groovy, too. Billie is quite the artist herself, and your soul won't be sorry to linger here, I promise.
