We were very pleased with our clean, basic rooms. Very good breakafast, brilliant view from breakfast-room. We will surely come back, and recommend the place to friends.We were two adults and one teen-ager. Three things could be better: Clogged drain in shower and smelly shower-curtain. Personally I prefer a little privacy at the loo, and three cubicals for the whole corridoor, and almost on the landing, felt a little exposed!

Great place, with a lovely view and right up on the side of the mountain. The staff were great, and worked hard to organise fun activities in the hostel (and out of it, as well!).

Best hostel yet. The mixing of the staff with guest was excellent. I should have stayed longer. Also the bigger mixed dorms are better than the six bed units. Also loved the impromptu performance by the opera singer.
