Really nice hostel! Good and clean facilities. Friendly helpful staff. The female showers/toilets do need an upgrade though compared to the male showers. But all in all a nice experience and I would come back.


We really enjoyed our stay in a twin room in this hostel. The location in Braemer is great if you're looking for some beautiful scenery, peace & quiet, hill walking etc. The hostel is fully equipped with a good kitchen, a cosy common room etc. Our room was fairly basic but clean & fine. The manager on duty was very friendly and helpful. There was a diverse crowd of nature lovers/ hikers (young & old), families, backpackers and motorcyclists, a good mix.


Staff was very helpful on my arrival and during my stay. Location of the hostel is lovely and its a beautiful old building. It was easy to find even during darkness and I would be very happy to stay again. Loved the powerful showers!
