Location, location, location. That is why I picked this place. Right on the lake. But really this place was funkier that I thought; the picture shown when I booked the room was not at all what we got, but it was a good amount of space, we were warm & clean, though a hole in the pillow case, and we were given two small towels the size of hand towels, but some hostels require you rent towels. The bathroom was clean, plenty of hot water, and even though only one per floor/per gender, we never had to wait.
Breakfast was so-so, dinner was nice. Service was very nice. The place is just run down & needs a re-do, it reminded me of hostels in the 90s and old ski lodges of the 80s. But there is the lovely view in the dining room & we walked across the street to the lake, very pretty, there is also a bus stop right in front. It was cheap, only $40 per night for two of us, but I would pay more to stay in a nicer place. If you are with a large group & want to do lots of outdoor activities & don't mind some funky-outdated-worn spaces, this place will work.
