Our hostel was a former family home and today it still has the feeling of “Home from Home”. All dorms and private rooms share the communal kitchen, lounge, BBQ and outside bar area, patio and balcony. Our breakfast is a 'backpackers' help yourselves breakfast consisting of white, brown bread, butter, 2 jams, peanut butter and syrup. Tea, coffee, sugar and milk available at all times in the kitchen. Our kitchen is fully equipped for self catering. Read more
