Good location. Very comfortable. Self catering kitchen was very messy, no other customers whilst we were there.

Incredible village, probably a bit isolated for young ones, we found a nice restuarant over the bridge. Didnt really like the mattresses, or bunks, breakfast basic , could make the main dinning room a bit more homely. My son is retarded, but was surprised to find heavy handicapped there, didnt like the way one young woman disciplined one. My husband got on well with the chap running it.

Plus: Extremely friendly and informal host. Guest room and toilet/shower clean. Beds to HI hostel standards. Potentially the best location on earth for a hostel as well given the surroundings. Minus: room atmosphere and amenities comparable to a state prison. Breakfast to be made yourself in a kitchen belonging to the owners' family- not clean, not equipped, with bread that was not fresh. Public toilets in main building dirty beyond use. Grounds outside dirty- plastic, waste, paper everywhere.

We could only stay one night as had to move onto pre booked accomodation for the next night so we really didn't make use of the environment and activities possible. Gorgeous location if you are an outdoors type and having a car certainly helped. The hostel has a relaxed, easy going feel to it and the staff were very helpful.
