The hostel was good for when you need a place to sleep. It was clean and a great location. The vibe was not social at all, and people only stayed with the groups they came with. The breakfast was absolutely not worth 8 euros. Go get decent food somewhere else. The staff was kind and helpful, and the people in the room seemed to think the room door should stay open all night, which was inconsiderate to the people sleeping. Bring your own towel, soap, etc

Clean, spotlessly clean bedding, friendly staff, appropriate vending machines and location is second to none - looking forward to getting back there - I stayed in 8 man dorm this time - plenty of snoring so may bring family and try larger room next time

Great place to stay. Pricey for a hostel but that comes with the lack of competition in such a small market. With ththat said, the value was worth it. They had a full, nearly professional self catering kitchen and all the backpackers wind up there so its easy to make friends.
