    Amazing location, however I guess it's difficult to get there without a car. The hostel felt very cosy and we really wished we could stay there longer! The kitchen was spacious and very well equipped, Wi-Fi - only paid and it didn't always work, which is the only, minor drawback. All in all- one of the best hostels I've ever been to and would definitely like to come back.
