Strangest thing. The hostel blocks Netflix. If you use a vpn, you can get around the block but they block Netflix on their WiFi network.

This is an old boarding school that's been transformed into a guesthouse. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the common spaces are full of old furniture, photographs, and loads of charm. The view of the lake is also stunning. They do make you take off your shoes at the door, which wasn't a problem for me, but seemed to be an issue for some other travelers. Slippers are provided if you'd like to borrow a pair. I had both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and both were quite good.

Very cool location, we were able to catch an incredible sunrise over the lake the next morning. Clean facilities and helpful staff. Breakfast in the morning was nice.
