The hostel was lovely with beautiful views of the valley below. The staff was amazing and full of great tips about the area. The first floor toilets didn't flush well. Many of them looked like they used lots of water. I went out to the camping toilets, which worked better. The kitchen had no labels on the knobs for some of the hobs so it was hard to turn them on. The camping kitchen has induction burners, but those need special pans, and none were available.

The kitchen was very under-equipped. Gas stove didn't work. Had to keep asking for utensils, crockery from the main kitchen. Very busy kitchen but one wash up station and a very small cooking area. The laundry was filthy and a fire hazard. Hot air ducting behind the dryer is damaged & partially blocked by stuff that's fallen on it. Needs a serious tidy up and clean. Of the only two washing machines one was out of order. The remainder of the hostel was really good. View from our room - wonderful.
