Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Really good hostel right on the lake. Parking is very limited but the staff was so friendly and helpful. Toilets had cleaning spray to allow you to wipe down shared facilities before and after use. Unfortunately due to COVID, kitchen facility were not open so there was no place to get hot water for coffee/tea.
