Me and my partner stayed for a night in a cabin in the garden. It was clean with good WiFi. Our hostess was very friendly and welcoming. We will stay here again this year and will highly recommend it to friends and family.

I stayed for a long weekend - the hostel was comfortable, attractive and easy-going, friendly staff and guests, and a great price. Lovely colourful rooms with comfortable beds, and two nice social areas. Would definitely book again! I stayed in dorms, but would love to check out the summer cabins.
