          Do the private rooms come with a private bathroom? Or are the bathrooms communal?

          Yep, 2 seperate showers and 2 separate toilets to share. But you can always jump in the river. Clean water and just as refreshing as the showers. I did it for 5 months too.

          Wie kommt man zu diesem Hostel. Gibt es eine Straße oder muss man über den Fluss anreisen? Kann man mit der regulären Fähre dahin kommen oder gibt es einen Transferservice? Danke :)
