It is situated just down the road. The entire place is very personal. The combination of both being a guesthouse and höstel makes the guest mix and atmosphere pleasant and open. After staying in the house you don´t want to leave

“The rooms in the more hostel-y of the two buildings (the one with the hot tub on it and the guest-use kitchen) are notably less comfortable than those in the more home-y building. Looking at privates in both, we went with the home-y option and were very satisfied.”
