Friendly host, stayed my the van outside. Would stay here again. Good kitchen and communal area, kept warm and cosy during the winter. Call ahead to make sure they're open in the off season.



Very homely, I really liked it. Old buildings but renovated bathroom, GREAT shower! Good communal spaces and views, friendly people. I recommend!!
