Beautiful hostel, lovely facilities. They put lots of effort into group activities however still not the most social (probs bc it’s low season) The rooms are lovely and the staff are incredible , have a bar and restaurant on sight, and can rent bikes and sort out day trips there. Only issue is wifi in the rooms but really loved the place !!
