  • Well what can i say, got there, they didnt have a bed in the dorm i booked so i got a free upgrade to a private room instead. The private room was lovely, perfectly clean and with all the extras you would want. Free breakfast was standard but better than nothing, soup is free, so who cares what it tastes like. Staff were nice and the rest of the place seemed in good order. Near to everything in town, including the tracks to glacier.

  • This is a great place. It is a very friendly breakfast and free evening soup...nice view on the mountains. Our room was a deluxe double bed ensuit bathroom. very nice and comfortable room. Very well equipped. The only drawback is the heating system. It works very well and can heat the room and does not make too much noise, but it uses a 60min timer...maybe we did not know how to use it properly, but otherwise, you need to wake up every hour or face being cold during the night.
