The rooms were comfortable the service was excellent and they had a continental and hot breakfast available. Wifi was free and decent and the access at night was ok through a back door keyed entry. Laundry was there but not available.

Our group of 9 cyclists stayed here on an 11-day leadership bike trek, and it was perfect. The hostel is one of the largest I've seen, with a large room devoted to our entire group. It's close to the lakes, the village, the ruins ....More

A one night stay here is OK, unfortunately we didn't have warm water. Taking a shower in the morning was 'refreshing'. The comfort is basic. The breakfast (continental) is very basic, cheese and/or e.g. salami would have been good.

It was very clean, especially the kitchen! People in the hostel were also very friendly and chatty! They also had a room where we could watch television, vending machines fully stocked so that was very handy! Loved the place, definitely going back!
