I stayed at the hostel during the solstice. It was unusually hot and the dorm room did suffer as a result. The bunks were comfortable and the room clean. The bathrooms were clean. There is a small kitchen which was reasonably well stocked with equipment and a small dining and seating area. This is a small hostel with a homely feel - there are two small dogs, so be aware should you have allergies. The owner Billie was pleasant during our interactions. There is a local bus stop, which means getting about isn't hard.
This is not a luxurious, or super modern hostel, but it does grow on you and I had a comfortable stay.
