I'd never stayed in a hostel. What a great surprise. Like being at a friend's house with a group of highly interesting guests. Accomodations of all types from bunks to private rooms. Guests of all ages, types and interests. Lot's of outdoor enthusiasts and athletes from ultra marathoners to bikers and hikers. Very clean. The owners have done an amazing job with this property. Highly inviting seating areas inside and out. Beautiful flowers. Self serve kitchen or meals provided. Washer and dryer. WiFi. Artsy, unpretentious, draws a certain kind of person who thrives in a communall environment. Long history of repeat visitors. Books up quickly so be sure to confirm reservations if your mind is set on staying there.
