    Really wonderful experience here during the slow season. It was extremely quiet and peaceful, and the staff was very friendly when they were around. Huge kitchen, clean spaces, and plenty of room in the shared bunk room. Would recommend!

    So the automatic check-in did not work for me. The outside phone rang for over 10 minutes with no answer. Another guest had to let me in, she said someone had had to let her in, and I had to let in other people later. The bedroom was fine, the bathrooms were nice and always available. The floor even felt heated in one, which was odd, but welcome. The staff were polite when they were there. It's a bit of a walk to town. Don't wear socks on the spiral staircase. It's slippery.

    As far as a clean place to sleep, this hostel did its job. It wasn't the most social of hostels, though.
