The hostel has a cosy lounge with a deck and a wood-burning stove. There's also a well-appointed kitchen and dining area offering communal seating. There is wifi in the common areas, a board games shelf, and wonderful views of the bay from the windows in the lounge.

I booked 6 beds in a 6 bedded room expecting us to be together as we have been in other hostels but despite there being just 5 of us (we paid for 6) we were split up into mixed dorms. The receptionist was rude and explained we should have asked for a sole use room!! Also she seemed annoyed with us for booking through hostel world and told me we should have booked directly with them then we would have had the rooms we wanted. The position is beautiful but not worth the uncomfortable atmosphere
