We loved this hostel! Exactly how it is advertised, including being greeted by Wally :) clean rooms, comfortable lounge area and the nicest, helpful staff who cooked dinner for us most nights! Relaxing atmosphere, great for chilling out and making new friends. Internet connection in every room :) Would recommend this hostel and we would definitely stay again. Love Sarah & Kay xxx

Staff: Funny, friendly, always up for hanging out. Location: Smaller village, only a few smaller supermarkets and pubs but definitely enough to survive. Atmosphere: Can be pretty chilled out during the cold winter period but the staff are always keen to head to the local pub or only night club in the Tatras. Value for money: Pretty fair, maybe a euro cheaper would be spot on. Facilities: Kitchen is top notch. Stove tops, oven (I think, can't quite remember), utensils. It's very new.

"this hostel is a home away from home", a very unique experience. Loved it and would definitely return when in the Tatra mountain region. Staff were inviting and helpful with all activities within the region. 5 star hostel.

It's like visiting friends. the guys who run it are really welcoming and look after you well! you'll never have to leave the house without it being explained where you need to go to find the walk, or hire the skis or catch the bus. it's a lovely quirky charming place, lots of meals out together. theres none of the plainness and sameness of some hostels. they've got clothing, gloves and stuff you can borrow to go out in the snow, and brilliant onsies. we only left because they were booked full!

What an amazing hostel!!! Definitely one of our favourites. This place has the best atmosphere, the staff are incredible and skiing/snowboarding was made so easy with super cheap gear rental and fantastic advice. Plus James and Ian have perfected the art of egg cooking, making every morning a good one ;) I wish we were going back!

Great Hostel, great people, great experience

AMAZING hostel, more like a share-house than anything else. Staff were incredible, facilities were great (hot showers most of the time!...), large common area with couches and movies, small but fully equipped kitchen and a homely, fun and cosy atmosphere. Whole hostel went out for dinner most nights and they had an honesty system for the beers in the fridge. Wallie the dog was an added bonus! Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back! Free/small cost for ski gear hire too :)
