Klasse Hostel. Schöner Aufenthaltsraum mit Kamin, vielen Sitzmöglichkeiten. Gut ausgestattete Küche. Sauna vorhanden. Und das Beste: An 2 Seen sind Ruderboote, die man benutzen darf.

Leider gab es einen Hund auf dem Nachbargrundstück, der die ganze Nacht bellte.

An exceptional greeting and excellent guided tour of the facility, everything very well prepared and spotless clean. On our request bed linen was supplied immediately. The kitchen was highly equipped and absolutely nothing was missing. Internet connection was available, albeit a little wobbly. Location was remote and very quiet, but this is what we wanted and we were not dissapointment at all. The addition of two available rowing boats on two separate lakes was a real bonus.
