Awesome place!! More like staying in a hotel than a hostel. Especially love the hot tubs! Nice kitchen and there's a restaurant too. Friendly staff. Only negative on my stay was that a school was saying who were really noisy- no one seemed to asked them to keep it down


I stayed here as a base to do the Tongario alpine crossing, i booked the crossing through reception, this involved transport to and from the crossing. The room was clean and tidy and had an ensuite. There was a spacious kitchen if you wanted to cook yourself or a bar/ restaurant if you didn't fancy cooking. In the courtyard there was also Hot tubs for you to soak and relax in, especially recommend doing after you have done the crossing.


Nice hostel, I think it was to expensive though. The room was looking good but had lots of repairs done and you could see that still + the beds were extremly soft and that made the next day having back problems


The staff were incredibly helpful, sorting out activities, transport etc.


Don't have high or medium expectations, and then you might be ok... Many members of staff were unhelpful/rude/unfriendly/sarcastic. The room was fcold and you could hear through the walls and roof what your neighbours were talking about. I would not recommend this place!


Dirtiest kitchen i've ever seen! No one seems to bother if anyone cleans up after themselves or labels their food. Other than that nice rooms with ensuite bathrooms


The ensuite in our unit is worn. Door sticking, laminates on washbasin peeling. No soap holder in shower box.
