Sander Mostly an unremarkable but decent hostel, in an uninspiring town which no one cares for anyway, since everyone is here for the big as National Park right next door. Didn't care for the climbing hall, but easy enough to ignore. Kitchen was decently equipped, though fridge-space was tight as usual. The "have to pay extra for sheets" comment from 2009 below worried us when booking here, but this definitely wasn't the case for us. Staff friendliness stood out positively, with a special mention for recommending the excellent Station Cafe (expensive, but way up there in quality) to us for dinner when we had something to celebrate.
