    I booked a 12-mixed dorm but upon arrival the staff upgaded me to a private room! The staff were so helpful and relaxed. Breakfast is not incuded but they have a wide array of food to choose from: fruits, meats, cheeses, etc. Like most hostels, they require that you take off your shoes at the door. Not a hostel for partying or much socializing but it is wonderful to relax and enjoy a quiet night in a really amazing location.

    A beautiful building in a beautiful setting with beautiful people :) It has a home feeling to it with the cosy common area and restaurant. The dorms are like big rooms with single beds, which also make you feel like more in a hotel than a hostel. Breakfast was delicious, was definitely worth it! Really recommend this place for a stop before or after your golden circle trip. Loved how all the shoes at the entrance were organized by a shoe-Fairy in the morning :)

    Great hostel right on the lake. They were so nice to upgrade me to a private room from a dorm bed. Clean, friendly staff, nice facilities but would not recommend if solo traveling/looking to meet people.
