Very nice place to stay. The vibe was good and Willem is an excellent host. Will recommend anyone who loves cooking for themselves to stay over there. Rooms are clean and so is the entire place. Make it your next stop

We make annual trips and every time it's enjoyable. Willem makes sure we have been well looked after. The location is perfect, the room has it's own little bathroom and the beds are very comfy. Keep it up, guys!

I booked a dorm and received a free upgrade to an end suite family room. The room is a bit odd, with toilet only separated by a curtain. Fine for just me, but maybe weird with others. They offer other bathrooms down the hall though....More
