My partner and I stayed here in 2009 (although i only had the option to put 2012 - i ama litle late putting in my review!!) and were made welcome by Chris from the moment we got there. We stayed for 1 week and had a double room.
Nothing was to much trouble, such as giving advice on where to go and what to do.
Room was clean and tidy and BBQ night was fun. Hostel was reasonably priced and away from the town - which is good because it's a great place to chill.
