I liked that the beds were wooden which meant they were squeaky. However, the rooms are organized around the sitting area and it was always loud (late at night and then again early in the morning). I also found there wasn't a comfortable sitting area, just a table and chairs. I enjoy sleep and, for that reason, I wouldn't stay at this hostel again. It was clean though.
Really close to the bus station and ferry port. A really nice area close to the old town with free bike to get you around. Rooms are a bit small but ok for a few day.
It could have been a much better experience if they hadn't put 6 people in a room suitable for 4 - and that without a window (but to be fair with AC). Staff + breakfast were no more than average. The patio is OK but you could make so much more of it. On the whole I wasn't overly excited...
A nice enough hostel though nothing special.
The hostel is very entertaining. The staff are super nice. But it was super cool, we were treated very well!! I recommend!!
Your dorms will be just after the main entrance and door are always open.
good hostel, overall great for the price paid and in really good location.

I thought the hostel common areas were really nice and cozy especially with the heater, maybe a few extra seats at the dinner tables for use would be nice and practical. Facilities were generally nice and clean. However, I felt the dorm bedroom feels a little cramped at full capacity (which it was during my stay) but otherwise it was a good stay.
An okay place to stay, location is great. Kitchen and bathrooms were good, dorms were basic. The downside was no heaters and in the huge rooms it makes it very cold, in current climate.
Staff very nice. Hostel is small. Backyard would be great in summer. Not much socializing between guests, I think because everyone stays for only one night. No bar. Location very good, between bus/ferry terminals and Main Street--5 minute walk to either. Breakfast was bigger than most hostels!
Minor complaint: Showerhead mount broken in men's bathroom pointed inwards toward the wall, so it was difficult to wash oneself without taking the showerhead down from the wall. Other than that, a great little hostel in a quiet town. Recommended. We stayed in the private bedroom next to the men's bathroom and the heater in that room works great.
