I can go from the station on foot and can also go to a supermarket right now. It was very convenient. I was a little astonished that a bed in the room was the one of the wide size of a bunk bed, but it was no problem. It was inconvenient that there are no hair dryers. There was a terrace, so it was good.

This YHA is very large and the feel of the place was one of a Hotel, not a YHA. The reception staff were polite and efficient, but no way you could check in before 2pm. Also I had to request my 10% YHA discount. There is a large kitchen, cleaned daily between 11am & 12 noon. One point to note is that the kitchen gas is turned off between 10pm and 8am. There is a large TV room with DVDs to borrow. That said it is a pleasant place to stay. But NO FREE WIFI

Excellent hostel and the location is perfect for local hikes. Other hikes just a short train ride away. Very clean and kitchen well stocked with kitchenware. Be warned, the food in the morning near reception IS NOT FREE. Made that mistake but I think labeling the food cart as "breakfast vouchers only" is appropriate because when people see food later out like that at a hostel, at least most places I have been to, it is free. Besides that, the fire is warm and the staff very knowledgeable!
