Beautiful scenery around, staff is fairly helpful. Short distance to the fairy pool. Kitchen is industrial standard, plenty of spaces and dinning area. Nice to listen to other travellers hiking experience in the comfy sitting area. Laundry services were provided by the reception rather than a self serve coin wash machine, i was a bit guilty to disturb his normal amenities cleaning process. The only issues about the stay are the midgets!!!! I still have the swollen bite marks from them 3 weeks after

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
It was a little hard to find the hostel, there was only one sign at the turn off, which we missed. It would have been nice if there was another sign along the way to confirm we were on the correct path. I liked that there were hiking trails right outside the door!

Lovely stay in the nature
My first hostel stay and it is better than expected. Staffs were nice and accommodating to our requests. Room is sparkling clean. Take break from the technology world and enjoy the nature as there is no reception or tv or wifi.
