    The nicest hostels I've ever stayed in! Very nice vibe and really cozy atmosphere. Lovely hosts Matt and Verena gave me a warm welcome. Great facilities, such as big TV lounge, fully equipped kitchen (have a great oven) You can enjoy large variety of cooking. Backyard has beautiful garden with friendly deer, chickens and ducks! Plenty place to enjoy sunshine. This hostel is the perfect spot to chill out :) I would highly recommend for a relax and friendly stay!
