Lovely gardens with sitting and resting places, a variety of accommodation styles, some minor items not working but usually because no one reports it, typical for youth hostels. Highly recommend some hooks and or shelves so clothing does not have to go onto the floor at night, including towels after a shower. Still, highly recommended!

Very nice outdoor sitting areas with shady trees, plenty of little sitting groups, bar service, all good. I would have liked some hooks on the wall to hang my towel or clothes.
