    Relaxed stay, our twin room was like a log cabin so it was very cozy. Large kitchen and communal area, plenty of people in and out skiing etc. Short walk into the town/lakeside. Free parking. Would stay here again.

    Stayed here for a weekend, The hostel is old and could use a makeover. The rooms are very noisy and the kitchen is small and unconvenient. The showers and bathrooms were clean and with good waterpressure. No free Wifi
