Für wenig Geld bekommt man auf jeden Fall eine gute Bleibe inkl. Frühstück. Die Matratzen könnten bequemer sein. Cool ist der große Vogel im Garten (Emu) und vor allem süß.^^

Very nice welcolming place to stay, the place is built on a level of trust which helps you to settle right it straight away. Accomodation was clean and comfortable and it was in the middle of beatiful woodland.

Staff was not very friendly/accommodating. Granted it was an extremely busy weekend due to a concert - don't think they were prepared for the wave of business. Don't take credit cards, no ATMs nearby - didn't know that prior. Hostel in the middle of the woods, literally. Location not good but comfort and cleanliness was satisfactory. Would not stay there again if I wanted to go anywhere but there.
