Everything is good. But the internet is only available in the first floor. I think it's a little inconvenient for me.

Awesome chill place, good facilities and stuff to do if you like board games and pool, free wifi has really good speed and coverage but you need your own computer. Beds are good, rooms are clean and warm, kitchen was really good too.

We loved this hostel! A great atmosphere of friendly travellers taking advantage of the ski opportunities. Perfect location right one the lake, easy walking distance in town. The three bed rooms are a bit wanting for space but there are common areas shared by two rooms. We would highly recommend this hostel!
