Cute, small place. Very quiet though, probably because of the season. The staff was nice and there was free soup and breakfast. It was extremely cold in the room though, luckily they have extra blankets .

We stayed one night in a private double room. The hostel is super close to the ferry terminal and the Intercity bus stop, which is handy. The room was spacious and clean. The kitchen was fine, and the free soup in the evening was nice. The bathroom had shared facilities for males and females. The showers only allowed 8 minutes of hot water at a time, and even then the water was barely warm. Overall, this would be a fine hostel to stay in for a short time.

Cozy little house near the harbour. Simple and spacious. They had free fruits and free soup every day and something for the breakfast as well. Really nice lounge area as well with lots of books and DVD-s Free WiFi! There was also a fireplace on when it was colder. Visited in May when it was not that busy. Would stay again 😊

So peaceful & such a friendly vibe, plenty of communal space and showers were so hot! Great area and about 5 minute walk from the ferry. Wifi is free and is fast! Staff are lovely too

It was awesome and it's very near the waterfront so you get commanding views of the surroundings. The only thing I didn't like is that the bunk beds are quite complicated to use (one ladder for two beds) so I had a hard time going up and down the bed. The rooms also need more power outlets.

Great location, close to the main street and waterfront. Easy walk to the ferry. Really liked the atmosphere in this place, like a big beach-house, nice upstairs common areas to chill out and meet people, desk chairs outside. Slightly annoyed staff member wouldn't let me do a late check-in, stuck outside in a big storm until morning as a result. But overall good value for money, would stay again.

It's a lovely, homely place, with comfy, cosy beds. It's really easy to get to from the ferry terminal, and it's just across from the beachfront and the town centre.

Decent place to stay for a night after getting the ferry. Rooms were fine and facilities were ok. The whole place is just a bit old and needs modernising a bit.
