    I really enjoyed my trip over there. The view is just amazing. You are lost in the mountain but with self-catered kitchen.

    Lovely hostel, good facilities and friendly staff in a beautiful location. My only *slight* issue was the toilet in the ladies bathroom - the toilet seat didn't stay up and because of where the hand dryer is, I kept setting it off accidentally.

    Pos: Staff was incredibly helpful, the cleanliness was outstanding, the kitchen was fully loaded, lockers, and the dry room was GENIUS! Neg; Without a car it is a pretty long walk from the bus stop (~35 mins) and stores (~30) so I took a star off for location, but it is in a beautiful wooded area with a lot of walking paths around. The Wi-Fi wasn’t working and there was no service there which kinda sucked, but it forced me to have a peaceful electronic detox. Would absolutely stay again.

    This is a lovely, friendly hostel in a beautiful location. The kitchen facilities are great and my room (female dorm) was comfortable and spacious. I had nice chats with other folks staying there :-) Would definitely recommend as a place to stay.

    Friendly staff, hostel is in need of some TLC, lots of things damaged or dirty, nonsensical Covid rules like disabling a hob for 'social distancing' yet people wandered around the kitchen as they made food anyway. We were told the facilities (the main areas) were closed between 10am-3pm for 'cleaning' which seems an inordinate amount of time to mop a floor and wipe services, also not great for someone stuck in the hostel as they had to sit in their room. Not particularly cheap.
