4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities

The area was beautiful and the few staff we encountered were courteous. The bunkroom we stayed in had dirty blue pillowcases, fitted sheets, and duvets. This is a shared room hostel which is a great way to meet people from around the world. The wifi was so weak we had to either sit at reception or not have access. Just like any other hostel, you rent towels and strip your own beds of the white linens you place there prior to sleep. The building wasn't well maintained and there was no sound limit enforced after a respectable time. This is a good hostel for maybe those in their 20's or older and travels regular ly. The price for 2 beds was an average rate we could have paid at another hotel but wouldn't have had the convenience to the hiking trails. Regardless, we wouldn't stay again. It was OKAY, not great, but doable. Recommend for young people or the regukar backpacker/hiker who doesn't expect regular niceties. Better than roughing it by being sheltered and having toilet/shower access. You can do laundry at €5/wash & €5/dry, so €10/load. No thanks!!!

Nickel and Dime Everything

Stayed in a room as a family of 5. I'll admit that this is the first time I have stayed in a hostel but it wasn't something we will do again. Room was small, only 1 outlet in the room for 5. No towels in the room, had to pay extra for towels. No wifi as mentioned, except in the lobby - so the lobby was full of students. The wife definitely wasn't happy. The place reminded me of an airline, where everything was nickel and dimed. Next time, just stay in someplace nicer.

    Overall o.k.

    Overall it was ok, staff friendly. Beds were quite hard and when I complained about the shower that stayed cold, there was no compensation. Later another room was offered because heating in mine wasn’t working. That was a nice gesture.
