A great stay! What a wonderful hostel! Has more the feeling of a ski resort hotel. Very friendly and profesional staff, spacious rooms and common areas, clean and welcoming atmosphere! Only downside is that you have to pay to store your luggage for the day after checkout. Get rid of this as it's unworthy of a hostel of this caliber to charge for petty things like that. Something that all hostels and hotels I've stayed in before have done for free.


Very nice Hostel, very clean and friendly staff. It was loud at night because the windows from our room where next to the Garden. Loud When you want to eat Dinner because there where a Lot of loud Kids.


Lovely place- love the decor. Carpets are nice and soft (which makes it quieter when people are walking past your room at night). Bright and airy. I didn't actually use much of the place as I was out for most of the weekend, but it all looked good. Beds were comfortable. The rooms could have done with more air though- one window in an attached annex made the main room a bit stuffy in the warmer weather. For future reference, it would have been nice to know to bring a padlock for the locker.

Enjoyed the spacious lounge areas. Did not enjoy sleeping above a 75 year old woman who went to bed by 8 pm, and would scold us with every movement we made. Also, for the price of a standard dorm room, we should have ventilation of air freely flowing.
