    I've done a lot of travel and I think this would probably be the favourite hostel I've been to. It genuinely felt like a home away from home, I felt so comfortable and Martin and Ronja are incredibly kind. Don't come here if you want bars and restaurants close by - it's a few km's for those things, but perfect if you want a quieter stay in a small village, with just the other guests at the hostel for company. 100% recommended, and hopefully someday I can return.

    Loved my time at Hostel on the Hill. It is a perfect location in a very peaceful village town, looking out over the beautiful national park. Only a 20min walk to the nearest beach. Martin and Ronja are amazing hosts, who are very helpful and generous. The facilities are great and the atmosphere was very friendly and calm. Would definitely stay here again.

    An amazing place! It's in a really cool, quiet little town, fairly close to the beach. It's nice if you want to go somewhere a bit out of the way and escape all the other tourists. The guy who runs it is super nice and makes an amazing breakfast!

    The location is quite nice, next to several walking trails and since we were hiking it was perfect for us. The staff is nice and there is only one dorm so the atmosphere is very familiar.

    It is a nice hostel if you have a car, if you are walking, it is kind of far from everything.

    I really wanted to enjoy this hostel, because the bathroom was large and clean. But the hostel was extremely difficult to get to (don't search for the hostel on Apple Maps; it takes you to the wrong location) and staff/residents were smoking marijuana, which significantly impacted my experience.
