Well decorated place, located near a very beautiful lake. Nice garden. Dormitories are nice and there are curtains on beds. Kayak, bikes, sauna, crashpads (etc.) available but at a certain cost.

No stove nor sink in the "kitchen", which is very unpractical if one wish to cook their own food. Moreover, "not allowed" to do you dishes in the bathroom sink...

Location quite unpractical if you don't have a car: no grocery store, nor hike nearby. With a car, it is though well located.

The space itself has everything you would want in a hostel. Gorgeous facilities, the outdoors and lake are awesome, inside is super cozy and clean. My biggest complaint is the vibe in general - the hostel staff very much keep to themselves (they all hang out together but have no interest in socializing with guests) even though they're also just living there for the summer. Food/drinks are EXPENSIVE and you can't really bring your own. Just not a very social hostel at all, but very nice space.

Good vibes, great views. They are working on setting up a proper kitchenette, however as of this time there is really only a microwave and a water kettle. So no option to cook your own food. There is nothing near there so you have to eat at their cafe. Which is delicious at least. The rooms only have a tiny lock box so if you have a big bag and are worried about security there is not enough space to lock it up. The lawn by the lake is awesome with hammocks, slack line, sauna, fire pits, etc.

One of the best hostels Ive stayed in, absolute paradise for an outdoor adventurer. Plenty of people on the same wavelength, great beds and facilities and the staff are amazing. Want to come back and Ive only been gone a day..
