Liked: It has an amazing atmosphere. Very friendly staff always happy to help and give tips on exploring the locar area. Very cosy reading room with a fire place, where you can chill out after a long treck, or play/listen to some music as 'common use' guitar and bembens are to use for everyone. Fully equiped kitchen with free tea / coffee / milk and linen are provided.

Disliked: toilets are very basic, and some of them would use some repair, but are kept nicely clean.

Liked: Great location and friendly staff. One can buy a small breakfast on-site, and coffee, tea, and hot chocolate are always available free.The coal fire was very welcome in the rainy weather.

Disliked: I think that it could have been a bit cleaner, although much of this concern is probably other guests being messy/dirty.Not bright enough lighting in the dining/internet area. Also, it would be nice to have small lights on/at the beds.
