I have stayed for 3 nights instead of 2, it's such a lovely hostel which has awesome view of the lake and snow mountain. It's also very clean and well organized. Just 5 mins walk to central, and if you are knee for some quietness during the night. This is a great choice!


The facilities were poor! Oven doesn't work, shower door doesn't close and cleanliness is an issue. The bunks are extremely uncomfortable. The location is absurdly fantastic!
