We stayed here on a Friday Night. This night is the party night at the hostel. Band was playing until 1am. So spending a relaxed night was impossible. Breakfast started at 8am. But we skipped it. Breakfast room smelled like cigarette and beer. Also it started at 8am what was pretty late. But it seemed like the youngsters were having...

The view from the top is truly amazing. However, this place is only accessible from two unpaved and very bumpy roads, which make every trip from and to the hostel an odyssey, imagine that in the middle of the night! We got lost and when we called for the staff to give us directions and no one really could tell...

Superb view from the top and inexpensive rates. These are all positive aspects about the stay at this backpackers. We stayed in a double room, shared facilities were under average, the 'camp' was managed by German volunteers who apparently did the best they can... However, mostly without any former experience you can imagine what the results are. The long and...

Ok, maybe the rooms sound isolation is not perfect, and perhaps the shower boilers could be fixed to avoid burn-then-freeze effect. But the double room was clean and pleasant, all equipment simple but nice, the pricing reasonable and the staff very welcoming (cooking pizza!). As for the view and site, they are no joke: simply STUNNING. Probably the best we...

Come with your own towels...................... Hygiene is not a priority. Nice location. Perhaps good for young people on an extremely tight budget..... You do not shower on your last night there because you know you will find cleaner showers wherever else you go.

Positive: The view is incredible and location unique. They offer meals, although we didn't try them. The rest: The doorways, doors and ceilings allow every whisper through (really, we tested this). Stayed in a private room and it was as though the cleaning ladies in the common area outside our room were laying on the bed next to us, discussing...

Wild farm wilderness Situated at the top of the hill. Not a walk you want to do but while the road is steep it's doable with care by car. The views are fantastic. Stunning is the word. Log cabins,basic but clean and tidy. Bathroom, the shower is a combi boiler. Great you think but not with low water pressure. When...

Outstanding views.Friendly, helpful and welcoming staff. Awesome that we could take our furbabies with us to enjoy their lovely surroundings and meanders. Kitchen could have a bigger or extra fridge as space was very limited.
