Lovely staff and a truly beautiful building to stay in. It felt very homely, which is great for a weary backpacker that has been travelling a long time. The only recommendation I have is for more powerpoints in the bunk rooms and more bathrooms. Otherwise, I loved it!!!


Cosy hostel with great facilities. A lot of great people around, even in winter.
