Positive Reviews

Great location

The hostel is in a nice central location in town and yet is very close to the lake. Most of the things you'll need are conveniently close by including restaurants, bars, supermarkets and pharmacies.

Good basic facilities

Considering it's a hostel, the facilities here are quite good. The rooms are spacious including those housing eight people and they are also very clean. The beds and pillows are comfortable and the showers are very good. There is a shared lounge, a sauna and a travel desk where you can get information on places to visit and also book trips.

Free breakfast and dinner

The hostel provides free breakfasts and dinners for guests. The meals are simple but very convenient if you don't feel like eating out.

Negative Reviews


This is one of the downsides of the location. The hostel is close to a few bars that are open till late so there's usually a bit of noise coming in from outside. Some of the guests at the hostel can also be quite noisy. There are free earplugs available at the front desk but this may not be enough if you're a light sleeper.

The Wi-Fi

The hotel only provides free Wi-Fi for a certain period and even so, it's not accessible from the rooms. You have to pay if you want to access the Wi-Fi all day.

The Fan is always on

The fans in the rooms are always on and there is no way of turning them off. It can be a little uncomfortable when it's cold.
