A delightful common area overlooking the canal and willows, and plenty of charming rooms set this hostel apart. The owner, Joy, is delightful, and the type of person who literally jumps into action if you so much as glance in her direction. My (private) room was always made up each day as well, very few hostels do this. I would love it if they served breakfast too, but local options do abound; this is a nice place with a great feel.
This is arguably the nicest hostel (private) room I have ever stayed in. Huge, cathedral ceiling, bright, large modern bathroom, extremely clean. Total bargain, better than many hotel rooms. The family ownership is very nice, and English is excellent. The only possible quibble one could have, is the common area is tiny, not much of a social interchange area, the staff seems to have future plans to improve. Great place to stay, would not hesitate to return.
I was there during off-season, so in fact, the only one. The staff was also rarely there, but always made arrangements to be there quickly when needed. I would say it is more like a home-stay than a hostel in the traditional sense. Ina, who runs the place, is something of an angel. Always available to help, She also included me in activities with her friends, just to make me happy. The house is spotless. The area lively and a lot of fun. Highly recommended !
This is the off-season, so the place was rather empty, so I cannot really comment on the usual atmosphere. The owner (Robert) is extremely friendly, outgoing, and speaks excellent English. The place was extremely clean, rooms were more spacious than average, but the immediate surroundings are not particularly interesting (esp food).
I think the "randomness" some complain about is part of the charm. Architecturally interesting, fun. My double room was large/bright, with router signal. That said, the overall wifi situation is poor. None in most rooms. Slow, and useless for skype or other calls. Too little data, too many users. They are aware, but I went elsewhere when good connection was needed. Location is cool, right next to extensive Green Lake Park. Overall, I quite like the place, would return.
Nice place, nice people, but not nearly enough planning and informational help and not enough English spoken.
