Been staying here for years for the music festival weekend and seen the old place in various incarnations. Under new management again, management seems to change every couple of years, and definitely back to a guesthouse and not a hostel anymore. The current managers are continuing the previous managers refurbishment and are doing a good job. The problem is that some serious money needs to be spent on the buildings structure and the owners arent willing to spend the money. For the price its still a good place to stay. Great location and its nice to stay in a place where guests talk to each other. Always found it to be a friendly place, both the staff and the guests.
