Very nice and quiet stay, from 13 to 16 December. Of course it depends on the people being there at the time. After reading internet comments about backpackers in general, I was absolutely surprised. Looked very clean and neat to me, not a single point of complaint comes to my mind. I didn't cooked there though, just slept in a 4-people room and used the showers. Very peaceful surroundings, ah and I liked the outside line to hang clothes.
Big plus to me : it was very easy to book online via debit card on their own website, a real pleasure compared to other backpackers using third party websites where neither offers nor fares seem to be corresponding to what is advertised.
