Well, you're either at the actual Balmer's Hostel or out at the "tent." We were at the tent. At first, we weren't wild about that idea, but we soon realized the tent was way more fun. It's where all the adventure guides hang out. The tents were freezing (probably because our heater broke), but the bed was pretty nice and the showers were very clean.
Plus, the lockout policy wasn't strict at the tent. The tent hosts daily happy hours. Revise that to daily happy three hours! Great times. There’s lots of drinking, but hey, if you're not up to party, don't stay here. It was fun.
