    Ended up staying 3 nights. Taff is very good. Cozy place. My favourite is the direct view of the Gondola. Heaps of free public parking spaces on the road.

    Alpine Lodge is one of the best hostels I've stayed in. If you're looking for somewhere quiet then this is place for you. The owner takes great care to ensure the safety and wellbeing of guests and staff alike. Great facilities and the kitchen is clean and well organised. Fantastic location. Town is just 5 minutes walk away but far enough to be away from any noise. Theres also a huge selection of free films in the lounge. I'd definitely stay here again.

    Taff was a fantastic host who was extremely helpful throughout. The kitchen system was well done and was easy to store our food. The beds were comfy and the rooms were warm. The bathrooms were freezing cold and the shower heads were very low.

    There not really people around and the hostel staffs are a bit strange. They moved my stuff sometimes and left the dorm door open when I wasn't there so everyone could go in the room. Just 3 free parking spots.

    Dirty especially the bathrooms, manager did not allow any visitors into the building at all, walls super thin so pretty noisy at night. Saving grace was the location.
