We stayed in one of the family units, the basics are covered, and the units are big and very clean. What stole my heart was the view, the quiet and the feeling of serendipity you experience while staying there. A must for everybody who's soul is found in the mountains.

It was truly a surprise to encounter a venue that is so close to nature (the forest was on our doorstep).
Cleanliness is a big plus, bedding was squeeky clean, bathrooms (albeit a bit small) was immaculate.
Martin was truly a joy to meet, and his warm welcome made us feel at home.
The only downside was some other guests that were rather noisy and inconsiderate when arriving late at night.
We really enjoyed it, but next time we will definitely stay in a cottage instead of the dorm rooms which was a bit small and crowded with 4 adults.

We enjoyed the accommodation and hospitality. Should you be looking to get away from town and seek peace and traquility, Step-Aside is the perfect place! Huge thanks to Martin and his team.

Fantastic! We had a great one-night stopover and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good quality, clean and affordable place to stay. Please, do not be put off by the mention of backpackers in the add, as the picture that jumps to mind is far from the truth! This is a place of peaceful tranquillity, and a friendly and warm welcome by your hosts.
The estate is clearly in the process of being upgraded, but if you can have patience with the outward look of some of the outbuildings and older parts of the establishments, as well as the driveway, you would be pleasantly surprised with the interior of your self-catering room.
Super well-equipped and efficient, modern with a comfy bed, and in all very-very clean. Luscious green lawns for the kids to run and play on and loads of quiet shady places to sit and gather your thoughts or clear your mind. Superb!
