DO NOT STAY HERE. It is expensive when you include all the hidden extras, it's far from the city centre and metro stations, and the owner is quick to be aggressive in every interaction. Two members of our party left after the first night even though they'd paid for 4 nights because they felt threatened by the owner and staff....

Extremely rude manager/owner who shouts abuse and swears for no reason - to everybody. We turned up for 1 night stay (2 adults and 1 child). They knew beforehand, as you have to e mail a night register with passport I.D., but cancelled our booking upon arrival. Frist wanted more money, then said "no rooms available) and children can not...

Cheap for those on a budget but adds up with the extras. Have to pay for all extras (showers, heating in cabins, sheets, towels, loo paper, etc). Husband owner not overly helpful and comes across as quite abrupt once he has your money. Shop on site sells the basics but would recommend going to the nearest Albert Hyne supermarket about...

It's cheap. We stayed in a hut for two and it was just that. A hut and two beds. I had an allergic reaction to either the dust or the mould in there, so I hardly got any sleep the first night and had to get medication for the second night. The city is far away and if you want...

Rooms was beautiful! If you need a taxi I would recommend calling G he was sound! Would highly recommend window shopping! Only down fall we did find bed bugs as shown in picture but part from that would highly recommend

Ok, so we stayed here in our camper. We hit traffic so arrived at 5.15pm. Little did we know the reception closed at 5pm. We then found our name on a list that just gave the pitch K. It was pitch black and raining and not easy to find the pitch. It is a big site with a mixture of...

You can't check in after 6, if you need sheets/showercoins, etc. The owner and manager of the campsite is rude. I would avoid this campsite, if you are going to spend money, spend it at a place where they are happy to work. This never again of my life.

My 3 friends and I stayed here for 4 nights and we got bed bugs home with us..... Not a very nice place to stay since there is no aircondition in the huts (and it was 23+ degrees at the nights we stayed). Besides this you have to pay for your own toiletpaper. The camping hostel is very far away...

The hostel was very far away from the city -40 mins by metro - 15 mins of walking to the metro station . Toilet paper and showers are paid via tokens . Overall I would say it's cheap place but should pay a few bucks more and get more comfortable place to stay .

Had a problem free stay here (except for getting lost to and from Amsterdam on my bike but that was my fault - I was provided with good maps). The cabin and shower/toilet block were spotless. All the staff I encountered were friendly and helpful. If you rent a bike, be aware that they only have the back pedal brake...
