In der Küche fehlten die Lappen und Tücher. Das Geschirr war deshalb nass und die ganze Küche. Zimmer und Ambiente sehr sauber und modern

+ Schön in der Natur gelegen, mit einem See/Strand in der Nähe. - Bezahlen beim Einchecken. - Keine Wandhaken und keine Ablagemöglichkeiten im Zimmer. - Sehr spartanisch eingerichtete Zimmer. - Schmales Doppelbett. - Mageres Frühstück.

The room was very clean with comfortable beds, a washbasin & fridge. Showers clean. Kitchen & dining area good but during our stay, other guests left their dirty pots in the sink & cookerwhich meant we had to clean up after them before starting to cook . There is a dishwasher so no excuse. The hostel needs to put up notices!! Breakfast is included but out of season is left in the fridge There was a lot of food, meats, fish, cheeses, pates, eggs, jams, bread, butter, milk, fruit juices, coffee.

Sehr schöne Unterkunft, klassisch am See gelegen. Küche war sauber und ordentlich, die Zimmer waren nicht die neuesten, aber komfortabel genug und für den Preis incl. Bettwäsche und Frühstück kann man nicht meckern.
