    This was one of the best places I have ever stayed- it's not a hostel but a very lovely and quaint bed and breakfast. The staff is positively darling. They were wonderful, kind and accommodating. And the breakfast- the breakfast was positively sublime. It was the best breakfast my friend and I have ever had! The view from our bedroom was so lovely, the B&B is right on the water and is in a tranquil environment. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a relaxing place to stay.
