Lovely hostel in a beautiful setting. Everything was clean, the bed was extremely comfortable. The food was good. The room was a little bit on the small side for 6 people with luggage but manageable. The only real problem was the women's showers which appeared to have some sort of drainage problem and left you standing ankle deep in dirty water. Hopefully this will be sorted soon!

Even though hotel staff tried hard to fix it ,our chalet heating didn't work at all. Staff brought two fan heaters but only one worked.
