    “Relaxing and clean”

    The hostel is perfectly located in Elterwater and has everything you need to make the stay comfortable. The only problem for us was that the walls are very thin and you can hear everything at night. Loud coughing and baby crying kept us awake. Earplugs required for a good night's sleep! Otherwise, beautiful place.
