The hostel is centrally located, between the historic downtown and both the bus and ferry stations. I found the location very convenient.
I visited this hostel in the off season, so there were not too many guests. This is a fairly large hostel. My four bed dorm was spacious with one bunk-bed, two single beds, a night stand, one table with chairs, a ceiling fan and a window. It had wood floor and white painted masonry walls. It was clean and well kept. The linen and towel were in good condition, white and clean. The bed was comfortable. Pillows were a bit hard but OK. There were plenty of blankets to keep you warm. The two shared bathrooms, I visited, were fully functional with hot water from a water heater. They were also clean and well maintained. There was a large and pleasant courtyard with plenty of tables and some nice foliage. The common room had a TV, plenty of seating and a nice fire place. I didn’t get to use the kitchen but for the size of the hostel it looked a bit small. The entire hostel was clean and tidy. Both Wi-Fi and breakfast were included in the room rate. Wi-Fi was good and even reached my room. Breakfast was just the average typical hostel breakfast but it was not bad.
The staff was excellent. They were very hospitable and helpful. Some spoke English. What I didn’t like were the very small lockers (probably the smallest I have seen). Even a small notebook wouldn’t fit in them.
Overall this was a good hostel for me and I would recommend it.
