Zostel enjoys a scenic natural environment. The tents are well-placed and hence offer spectacular views of the mountains. The place is ideal for youngsters looking to make new friends or hangout with the old ones. All the rooms are neat and clean. When it comes to food, you cannot expect a lot of variety.
