    The cabins are very nice, especially for groups like ours. Nice appliances and plenty of room for 6 adults.

    This is a modern and very well organised hostel. Everything was very clean and tidy. The bed was comfy and the wifi worked very well. The location is not central, but it is still very good. The only downside was that I did not receive the instructions for the contactless check-in with access codes by e-mail. Upon my arrival, the reception was unstaffed, so I had to use their phone at the entrance of the hostel and call someone. After a couple of minutes everything was resolved and I could enter.

    Only problem was limited accessibility for people with any mobility problem, as the kitchen and lounge areas required climbing a flight of stairs. Completely mobile persons would have no trouble. Those with knee or heart problems would find the stairs difficult. No good access for anyone with need for walker or wheelchair.

    Very well equipped, very well organized hostel. Spacius lounge, enough room in the kitchen even during morning rush hour. I only experienced negatives that were caused by other guests (not very clean mokka pots for example). Overall a great experience, very much recommended, not just as a budget solution.

    For the first nights, we had a cabin ("Grund") - which was so super that our children almost did not leave it at all --- it included even a hot tab. Basically, this was one of the best locations we had overall during this year's travel! Only problem: It is situated vis à vis ringroad 1 - so you cannot call it a romantic atmosphere. But there are not many cars on ringroad 1 during the night, so it was not loud (even for me who has a only a light sleep. Recommendation: large cups would be great!!!

    Big nice room. Friendly and helpful staff, but not always staff present. No frills hostel that doesn't really have any charm, but has everything you need including a good size kitchen, and everything was very clean. Could do with a few more toilets and showers.

    Hostel was fine other than that our room had some sort of flying gnats that bit me while I was sleeping. I ended up with 47 bites on my arms and hands.
