    Really enjoyed my stay here! Very comfortable and the soft blankets for the beds are a great touch this time of year! Only stayed one night but used the public bathhouse opposite and slept really well. Location is around 10-15 minutes walk from the old town. Be prepared for a steep climb to the top bunk, and to rent a towel if you need one! Staff were super lovely and accommodating, really enjoyed chatting to them. Would have loved to stay longer! Thank you so much! Would stay again ☺️
