Nice, quiet and clean hostel in an isolated location with a stunning backdrop of snow capped mountains behind and the coast (some way) in front.
We stayed in a four bed dorm with solid, sturdy bunks, the lower ones of which were pretty spacious. The room was clean and spacious for a dorm and the bedding (at extra cost) was in good condition.
Only a couple of minor drawbacks: the kitchen is pretty small so you might find yourself waiting in busy periods, but the adjoining conservatory/dining room is very spacious and airy and comes with stunning views. Also, all the showers are downstairs which can be annoying if your room is upstairs, but there's space to change in privacy. None of these minor issues are unusual for small hostels.
The place had a few locals staying which can only be a good sign. We would use again as a south coast stop off.
