The staff seemed confused about their jobs and the atmosphere could have been better. Location is good for the ferry.


Great place to stay, location excellent for town and ferry terminal. The hostel was exceptionally clean and a very pleasant place to stay.


Cozy little place.


Overall a good hostel really near the ferry port. All the signs listing rules everywhere


I stayed for one night. Staff was friendly and helpful, gave me some advice about walks. The hostle seemed pretty clean to me. And it is a short walk forn the ferry terminal.


The place was very clean and they had a lot of individual toilets and showers which was nice. They are just getting ready to renovate the bathrooms as well. Great location right next door to a Subway that is open early/late and right by the ferry station.
