    Friendly atmosphere and helpful staff. Good cleanliness and rooms nice. Only a short walk from the centre and lake. Went in the low season so was a bit quiet but can imagine it would be very lively in summer!

    Wonderful people working there and a great atmosphere! One of the friendliest hostels I’ve stayed in! Basic but good facilities, slightly hard to find because it looks more like a house! Would totally stay here again!

    Cute little place, very easy to walk to city center and bus station. We visited during a slow weekend, so we did not have any roommates and did not see any other guests until check out! I imagine it could be more social during a popular season but it was a nice quiet spot for us! While the staff/facilities did not exceed expectations, we were very comfortable for our night here and not disappointed at all! I would visit again.

    Not very impressed but it’s the only hostel in town. Staff was inattentive, WiFi only works in lobby, beds are squeaky and uncomfortable, and the atmosphere is lacking. Not a great value for the price. I’d be willing to try it again when the bar is open for the summer months.

    Nobody ever showed up to open the hostel. Nobody replied to my e-mails and phone calls announcing my arrival. I didn’t receive my money back. This hostel is a Ghost Hostel!
