Majda, our manager, spends a lot of her free time in nature, so she is happy when she can recommend the green areas surrounding our hostel to our guests, where they can relax without a care in the world. She is especially proud of our fruit and herbal gardens, as their seasonal produce provides that special touch to our drinks and dishes.
