Liked: It was our first experience in a Hostel, and we definitely would come back and do it again in other places. Thanks for a lovely time. We liked the homey atmosphere, ability to cook a meal, nice facilities, friendliness, etc.

Disliked: Wash cloths would have been nice in the rooms.

Liked: A beautiful building, plenty of space, a great variety of people. Families for New Year as well as travellers from all over. Staff were very helpful all the time.

Disliked: The kitchen is a bit disorganised, but then there are a lot of hostellers. Would a hot water urn be better value than one electric kettle or the kettle for the stove.

Liked: Ordinarily this hostel is really nice with alpine cabin feel and a few perrks like a good restaurant abd games room. The rooms are very small and tight for in-room storage and access to this storage is under the lower bunk so that is a pain. On the night I stayed the whole town was on a scheduled maintenance blackout. Arriving after 17 hours in transit from the UK to a completely dark hostel with no hot water was disappointing. Even though it was scheduled so they could have warned guests the HI had not arrange hall lamps or torches or anything just giving out rediculous glow sticks. CRAZY.

Disliked: The rooms are very small and tight for in-room storage and access to this storage is under the lower bunk so that is a pain. The toilets are in the room and no alternatives are provided off the hall so night time nouse is annoying with flushing etc. On the night I stayed the whole town was on a scheduled maintenance blackout.
