It's just a few minutes walk along the lake front to get to the YHA and it's the quiet location that makes this a great place to stay, along with it's helpful, friendly staff. The kitchen facilities are good but at peak times very busy and finding a free locker or fridge space is a challenge on day one. The bike store and luggage storage areas are secure and have ample space. The big thing that lets it down is the wifi - it just doesn't have the capacity for the volume of use. Getting a stable signal at any time of day (or night) to upload simple strava files (which only really take a minute or so) was nigh on impossible. Given wifi is almost as essential as electricity these days, we found the best bet was to take ourselves off to a bar in town - even when we didn't want a drink!
