    Great place to stay! I opted for a single room with private bath. The breakfast was good and nice to eat on upstairs terrace. Their laundry service was fast and cheaper than prices in town. When I asked for advice on trails to hike and other options, they were helpful. The room was spacious and a nice bonus was my own balcony! This is a tourist town, so if you want to sleep in on weekends, you may need some ear plugs past 8am. Glad I visited for 4 days, to see both weekend and weekday scenes.

    We got a private room, and it was spacious, had warm water for showers and a great view of the mountains. The terrace/kitchen on the top floor also had a wonderful view of the surrounding mountains and of the town, so it provided a lovely space for eating breakfast every morning. Only issue I had was that the kitchen did not have many clean utensils, mugs, or plates outside of the hours of breakfast provided by the hostel.

    We stayed in a private room, and had our own little balcony. The location is close to everything, including a 1 minute walk away from the baths. This pace felt like a hotel more. I would recommend to anyone!

    This place was extremely well located. The staff was always helpful and gave us great guidance any time we needed. The decor a bit odd. The room facing the street was exposed to more was nice, the food amazing. We happened to be there one morning when they were making a fresh batch of strawberry marmalade. The smell made our mouths water and the taste of it on our pancakes, their homemade bread and on top of our granola was superb. We could see the waterfall from our room.

    Great stay! Beautiful atmosphere and kind staff. Biggest drawback is that they don’t provide filtered water. You have to buy it elsewhere or their overpriced small bottles. Shampoo and soap only available with request.

    The hostel is clean and beautifully decorated. The bed is quite hard but ok. The rooms are spacious but do not have any tea/coffee making facilities. The staff were nice but not keen to help, for example I asked if I could swap my wet towel for a dry one to take to the thermal baths and was told no. The hot tub/steam rooms were not in use. I was hospitalised with food poisoning and I don’t know for sure the cause, but the only thing I ate that my boyfriend didn’t was breakfast at the hostel
