Liked: It was close to the train station.

Disliked: The showers were way to hot. They were literally scalding which made it impossible to have a proper shower. Staff were not very friendly. Internet was £3 per hour which is outrageous.

Liked: Well-organized and clean, good bathrooms and beds.

Disliked: Staff wasn't the most friendly. Seems over-priced for what it is, probably because it's a ski town.

Liked: The location, had private rooms, own sink in room, quiet.

Disliked: the staff wasn't terribly friendly, didn't introduce us to any of the areas in the hostel, didn't let us know about breakfast etc. The hostel smelled funny, the bathrooms and toilets reminded me of a hospital or clinic.

Liked: Loved this hostel so much that I booked for 3 extra days. Really quite location in wooded area just off the main road. Staff really helpful, especially with information about the local amenities etc. Got great dining area, well equiped kitchen, BIG T.V. lounge and smaller quiet area. Can't really praise it highly enough.

Disliked: Nothing
