Our group of geologists stayed here for two nights during our field trip exploring the local geology. We found it to be an excellent, affordable, well-located "base camp."
Accomodation is basic, as one would expect from a hostel. Very clean. Water pressure in the shower quite low unfortunately.
Decent breakfast which can be arranged with the staff. I think they even gave us free bananas which weren't part of the breakfast. Just a nice gesture.
Mobile reception is non-existent in these parts, but there is a pay-phone. Staff super helpful when we needed to sort something out on-line by letting us use their computer/fax.
Pubs are a minute away by foot. We tried two different ones and enjoyed a few pints.
Would definitely recommend this hostel and group leader said that this hostel could be used as a base for another group of students from our uni in the future.
Hostel staff excellent and genuinely concerned if there are any problems.
