While travelling we stayed here on two separate occasions. The first was for 7 days. We were blessed with an awesome group in our 8 bedroom dorm and although we were told we had to change rooms half way through our stay the receptionist ensured we all got to stay together in another room. The drinks at the bar were cheap and the dinner was free with a vegetarian option - if you're into that kind of stuff.
On our second stay it was a bit more disappointing as the bar was closed for the season and free dinner was no longer offered. This was not reflected in the price and we were not notified of these changes until we had already paid and asked for the meal vouchers. On the positive side, when the bar is closed you are allowed to openly drink in the rooms.
Rooms are spacious and have tables both inside and outside which was great for socializing. Security is 24 hours and he was friendly.
