It was a nice stay, we liked it! The only small things I can think about was that the internet didn´t work in the rooms and that there was no cloth in the kitchen to clean the tables and benches with after use.

Inadequate amounts of plates bowls cups and cutlery, which made eating meals a chore rather than a pleasant experience

Das Hostel war für uns nur Zwischenstopp zwischen zwei Busfahrten, und wir waren begeistert: alles war sauber, gemütlich und offensichtlich mit Liebe eingerichtet. Küche und Bäder top, Hot Tub sah gut aus, wir haben ihn aber nicht getestet. Die Mitarbeiter waren sehr freundlich, das Zimmer sauber und ruhig, das Bett war für Hostelverhältnisse sehr bequem. Es gab auch ausreichend Haken, was für Backpacker echt super ist. Alles in allem ein angenehmes Erlebnis!
