La cuisine pour les hôtes est très petite. On ne savait pas si on avait accès à la grande salle de séjour. La présence de multiples messages à caractère religieux sur les murs est déroutante pour une auberge de jeunesse avec le label HIhostels. Il y avait même un pupitre pour célébrer des offices religieux ! Votre organisation n'est elle pas censée être laïque ?

This hostel is owned by a religious organization, and they have rules that you have to follow on your stay. Wasn't aware of this when I ordered. Beds and rooms are very simple, but price is high. Wouldn't order again.

The youth hostel is in the nature. Good to find, but drive on 1km gravel path with gaps in it. A nice hostel, good breakfast, friendly staff. Only one bad thing, extremely slow wlan, we had nearly 30minutes to book a youthhostel for our next stop.

Man muß das wollen. Die Herberge liegt toll in einem Fischerdorfmuseum, ist aber mega abgewohnt. Küchenausstattung: vergiß es. Super hellhörig, das ist aber bauartbedingt. Was für belastbare Gemütet.

All in all good. There was just one more person staying at the hostel, so we had a lot of space for us :) The non alcohol policy was a bit unexpected to us, but did not really affect us too much. The shower in our room flooded the whole bathroom, so you could not use the toilet afterwards any more. A bit far off from town, but we were prepared for that.Could be difficult if you didn't have a car.
