It was a pretty noisy night when we stayed, probably because a Rugby team was also there so that affect our stay. Everything else was pretty nice! More

It's homey, large kitchen, and cozy dining room, very near to the lake and city center, large parking space. The most important thing is, this hostel is not too crowded (dunno in summer). Not the best, but at least very decent. More
