We stayed at the oldest building and it needs some renovations (our window fell and broke, so they moved us to a staff room), but it is still a cozy hostel. Breakfast is good, as well as budget menu, and outdoor terraces are great. The environment is amazing. Considering our issue with the window was a single experience, it wasn't very kind of them to charge us for the night in the uncomfortable staff room. Whatever, our stay was good and the hostel is a perfect place to explore the area.

Great hostel, exceptional location directly by the lake, nice 4 bed dorms, very friendly staff, breakfast better than average (good bread, muesli...). Free billard/pool table, table football, ping pong. Loads of outdoor activities. We went canoeing on the lake and river down to Bistric and it was fantastic. On the downside, the hostel dinner wasn't great. I'd certainly stay there again, maybe next summer

I was very please about your youth hostel, as the staff was very friendly in a country where I've never been. I met some fine people shortly, and I amused me very well with your mountain bike and the lovely sunbeams. The room was nice, and I hope you could repare the light. Of course, the nature is something special, take good care of it!!
