the hostel must be much better during the summer. In fact everything is open and not heated, so we couldn't enjoy the common area without freezing. At least they had a heater in the room. So I recommend you to stay there during the summer because it seems to be very nice during this period : the location is good next to the harbor, the bus station and the historical center. It's also clean, there is a terrace where you can enjoy the sun and line your clothes : . For the price, it worths it.
The staff is cheerful and hard-working, but no one speaks English, so some things fall between the cracks. This hostel has a capacity for many guests and accepts large family groups, as well as children; so the public areas can become extremely noisy with dug-in, socializing crowds. The lobby was directly off my dorm-room which made it frequently hard to sleep. Also, you will need an umbrella to access any of the shared-bathrooms, as the three toilet/shower rooms surround the open-air patio.
