    Slightly more expensive than the average backpackers but worth it. Slightly restricted vibe - no guests whatsoever and a lot of the people where in family or close groups so atmosphere could have been better

    Stayed in clean double private - a small wooden hut with towels, linen, 2 charging points, radiator, table fan.Wifi was weak. Shared Toilets and showers 2 of each. They were clean in afternoon but by 10 am next day the toilet needed cleaning. These were shared by 3 tents, 3 privates and 2 dorms - busy in the mornings. There is laundry facility, free car park, the kitchen has multiple stoves, utensils, microwave oven, no electric kettle, outdoor barbeque. Near village center & lake. Value 4 money

    Nice accommodation, line for toilets and showers in the morning. If you don't mind not having great wifi or cellular coverage then the location is great!
