It does not matter if you like juggeling or not, you will love it there :)
Originally I just wanted to stay for 2 nights in this beautyful little hostel, but I stayed for almost a week.
The people look very well after the place and are friendly and helpful. If you want information about tracks, the area or just a tip for some activitys they can tell you everything you need to know. After staying in so many big hostels, it was so much nicer to stay in a place where you can see, that the people love, what they are doing.
If you are a juggler (like me) you will probably know the place already. Lots of tools to practice with and mirrors on the walls, so you can see what it looks like. Perfect!
The cat is just lovely, I almost catnaped her :) But I don't had to, cause I will be back for christmas.
