We have stayed in this hostel for 3 nights and we were very satisfied with overall service. The hostel is renovated, painted walls, new wooden floors, new furniture, new beds, which were quite comfortable. Bathrooms are situated in a basement, which was a bit odd, but not difficult to get used to. Only women's bathroom was renovated, but it is said that the men's will be renovated too. Large living room is nicely equipped. There is an piano and table football. In a kitchen there is a microwave and plenty of new dishes. Everything is free for use. It is really nicely decorated, and whole ambient is very very beautiful.
This hostel works on voluntary basis, as it doesn't have permanent staff. That is why it is why it is so cheap and is open only during the summer.
Only drawback is that there is a specified time when you have to return in hostel, or in contrary, you wont be able to get in.. It's being closed about midnight, and during a day between 12 and 15h, if I can recall well. So you have to adjust your sightseeing with opening hours...
All in all, the hostel is very nice, and all people we met were quite friendly
