Fodor's Review

Shoot pool with a view of the mountains and lake. This is a well-liked backpackers (i.e. hostel) in town and is within walking distance of shops and stumbling distance from the bars. While the cost of a bed is relatively cheap, frills are extra: towels, duvets, and bicycles are for rent and you pay for internet use. Be sure you have an extra pocketful of "shrapnel" for the coin-operated laundry.
