We loved staying at the Lake Purple Cow hostel. A beautiful view just across from the lake. Lovely in winter, must be gorgeous in the spring and summer!

Second stay here, this place is great, really clean and the room had it's own little kitchen. Good wifi and great views from the main lounge.

Kitchen was great, heater in the room was a little questionable but i get the feeling they are slowly improving facilities. :) It is close to town and the nightly movies are fun. Enjoyed my time here!

Such a great hostel with stunning views and cozy fire place! Have been here roughly six years ago, it didn't seem to have changed at all - but in a good way! Would clearly come back.

Good hostel, very clean and great kitchenettes in the rooms. Atmosphere, however, was seriously lacking.

A kitchen in every 4-bed dorm is pretty awesome.

Stayed in the deluxe double room, was really surprised by the size of the place, felt like I had my own apartment, ensuite bathroom was nice, clean and modern with towels provided, heater kept the place very warm and comfortable bed. Communal kitchen is big, with plenty of space for storing food, plenty of pots/pans etc, can get a bit crowded in the evenings. The location is great, not far from the lake and shops.
