My biggest complain is the noise, it was midnight on a week day and you could still hear people downstairs being super loud, I understand some people want to socialize but it's very disrespectful to other guests that have plans early in the morning, management should do something about it.
I got a privet room with bathroom witch was pretty clean and comfortable, small but cozy.

The building is historic and charming, however, the kitchen would not pass health dept inspection. The mixed dorm room has 9 beds-- 4 bunk and one mattress on the floor (a violation of fire code). The dog is sweet, however, his presence would make anyone with allergies ill.

We were early checked in by the friendly host, Jimmy and yogi (the dog) as the owner, really cute fellow!
Unforgettable and first time tried cabin style lodging and the place is 5 mins -10 mins away to The Village, Magic Mountain and Boulder Bay park. Rustic and charming in its way, the hostel encourages to interact with other guests thru communal areas with game room and cozy fireplace. Jimmy was thoughtful of asking my food preference and served Mexican dinner with vegetarian option. Stay on weekday came with free dinner and breakfast.
We enjoyed abusing as well their guitar instrument😝
The only negative I have which is doable, i found Lumps of hair in the bathroom
floor. Other than that, it was cool !

The staff was very respectful and friendly. There was even breakfast in the morning. Our room even had lake view and Yogi (the dog) was an angel. We recommend it to family and friends and will definitely stay here again. What a bargain.
