Super Hostel für Zweiradfahrer!!! Das Hostel liegt 50 Meter neben der Hauptstraße. Der Hof ist mit Schottersteinen belegt, also loser Untergrund. Biker brauchen eine Unterlage für den Seitenständer. Die Gastgeber sind super freundlich und zuvorkommend. Das Hostel bietetsaubere neu renovierte Zimmer und Aufenthaltsräume, eine große Küche mit allem was man braucht und sogar noch mehr. Das Hostel hat außerdem ein Trockenraum mit Raumentfeuchter für nasse Motorradbekleidung oder zum aufhängen der Wäsche. Auch für die nassen Schuhe ist gesorgt. Es gibt eine riesengroße Waschmaschine und einen großen Trockner. Die Gastgeber müssen sehr Tierfreundlich sein. Sie füttern sogar im Sommer die Vögel mit einer Fütterstation.

Really nice place to spend a few nights.

Really nice private hostel in a great location. Greg and Helen are enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and always on hand to offer advice re local attractions etc. The hostel is spotlessly clean and well-maintained, a large kitchen with good facilities, and a drying room. The bedrooms are a good size, and showers etc are clean and in good order.The guest lounge is comfortable and welcoming with board games, books and a good TV (limited channels, but who wants Sky Movies in a hostel??). Overall, it's hard to fault Saddle Mountain Hostel, especially when you've had one of Greg's excellent coffees - a real bonus! Thanks for a lovely couple of nights - we'll def. be back!
