Construction outside my window two inches from my head starting at 6am. Building sounds are one thing but the music the workers were playing was louder than anything as well. If you are looking for a social hostel, this is NOT it, everyone seems to be a long term stayer and no one went out of their way to chat, you were lucky to get a hello. The staff seemed annoyed having to help anyone and the kitchen wasn’t the best. Pretty view from the patio but a huge hill to get up there and a good walk from the main

Very clean and reasonably priced. Not very social so happy I already knew people that were there at the same time. Is about a 5-10 min easy walk into town.
