Wonderful location, at the lakefront. Rooms are comfortable and tidy. Common areas are very clean and staff friendly. Not far from city centre, with lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Ideal as a budget hostel.

Bed linen was provided automatically during my visit in April 16 but not sure if you can hire towels (will cost slightly more if you can) as I used my own.
