    I am at times hesitant when a hostel is ranked this high though after staying here I am wondering why they are not a solid 10. Amazing staff, super clean, quite in the evenings, HOT showers, GREAT place to meet people and the breakfast is one of the BEST I have seen in a long time. The internet is not fast enough to upload many photos to Dropbox but it is fast enough to do typical backpacker stuff. I didn't want to leave. I would definitely recommend this hostel!

    Cosiest hostel ever! Being a digital nomad, I can say this has been a great place to work from! Internet connection it's okay, it's very calm and relaxing! Staff is very welcoming and caring, not to mention the amazing breakfast! I used the locker room as my office and you can light the fireplace if it gets cold! It might be a bit hard to socialise in the hostel if you travel alone (everyone is doing day trips and tired when they're back) but there are amazing bars, cafes and restaurants nearby.
