Liked: Fantastic view from the dorm window to the lake and mountains behind.

Disliked: Despite the great view from the dorm it was far too close to the main lakeside road and suffered badly from traffic noise. Earplugs are essential if you stay in one of these front dorms. Also no atmosphere at all but I must admit I rarely went into the kitchen/ common room and most of my dorm mates were very quiet and unfriendly, spending their whole time on their computers or smart phones.

Liked: The location is perfect- right on the lakefront and not too far from town but away from the centre, which I appreciated. It's also two minutes away from a convenience store where you can buy bread, milk, etc, although there's a wider choice at the Night 'n Day store in town.

Disliked: Can't really think of anything I didn't like!

Liked: Had the best view of the lake from our room! The location was also ideal, far enough from town to get some peace and quiet but close enough to have a good time in town when you wanted to.The staff were super lovely as well.
