The tenting site is communal. You don't have your own tent site. You can't drive your vehicle to the site, so you need to haul your stuff in on the provided carts. The amenities are fine and you can have interaction with other travelers. You can book directly with the hostel and save the Hipcamp fee.

We very much enjoyed the atmosphere. Sven and the staff was exceptionally kind and friendly. The amenities were great. The only drawback was the amount of noise. The site is located next to an airport, so planes were landing and taking off overhead all day and night. In addition, there is roadwork nearby, also causing a lot of noise. Otherwise, the stay was very nice.

This is an awesome place to stay. There are many more amenities than the ones listed. Everything we needed was provided. And the other campers were kind, interesting and fun.
