      Friendly owners and awesome surroundings.”

      The place is very lively. The owners are so friendly. Beautiful grounds. Didn't have towels in private cabin though. Or cups. Byo I guess. Little bit out of town but got a bus to take you around if not got your own transport. Shower in cabin was excellent. Recommend short or long stay.

      Common area, price and beers

      We booked a cabin online through agoda and were only informed when we arrived that they were all booked out, so we had to be put up in a caravan. Not impressed

      Hostel alejado del centro de Agnes Water”

      El hostel es agradable y está en un entorno muy bonito, pero esta muy alejado del centro de Agnes Water, aunque tienen un shuttle bus gratuito. Las zonas comunes están bastante bien, pero el personal no resultó demasiado amigable, especialmente a la hora de preguntar por posibles excursiones o actividades. Mención especial el hecho de que no tienen llaves en las habitaciones... según ellos se fían de todo el mundo

      erfahrung, auf die man auch verzichten könnte”

      gartenanlage

      das hostel ist eher für alternative leute geeignet, man konnte sein zimmer nicht abschließen. wir hatten ein privat-room mit eigenem bad, die toilette war sehr dreckig. die gemeinschaftsküche war auch sehr dreckig. laut party war jede nacht bis morgens irgendwann. personal war unfreundlich, vielleicht lag es auch an dem benebelten zustand einiger mitarbeiter.
