Originally built on a farm, the farmhouse can be dated back to 1760 with the rear part of the house goiong back as far as the 1500s.

The barn was converted into a bunkhouse with the rest of the hostel following suit. The hostel has a modern and airy feel whilst keeping the original farmhouse aesthetic.
