We arrived to a town debilitated by a lack of electricity. The hostel was great. They had generator power so everyone could cook (local supermarket within walking distance also had generator power), the fire was working, the lounges were comfy, someone entertained on the piano and the place was really cosy. Our room was exactly like the picture, comfy and quite big. The ensuite was clean and spacious. Staff were very helpful and obviously under pressure. Although they couldn't provide hot water and the sauna, we had a great stay. A credit to the staff under trying conditions. Would stay again.
