    The lovely people running the hostel are awesome and doing everything to make your stay there great for you. I really liked the big garden and the Bambi there. The kitchen and the dining and living room are also really big. Of course: the rooms and bathrooms are quiet old fashioned but it's a good atmosphere and everything is really clean. You get free wifi there and you can also use a computer that is provided.
