A very nice hostel, great garden, pool, variety of activities possible. Good resto just across the street, breakfast good, room clean and shared toilet and shower surprisingly clean! Bit expensive though!

Sehr schön gelegene Unterkunft mit einem grünen gepflegten Umfeld, dass keine Wünsche offen lässt. Das Finden der Zufahrt zum Objekt ist etwas problematisch, da es in 2. Reihe liegt und das Hinweisschild an der Mauer etwas klein ausgefallen ist. Aber wenn man die Unterkunft gefunden hat, ist man begeistert.
