We rented private room #1 for myself,husband and 2 daughters (10 &13 yrs).What a great little place! It is essentially a very large house with two kitchens,very well layed out.The caretakers live upstairs.On one side there are 2 private rooms (#1 & #2) with a bathroom and kitchen.There are two large double doors that connect you to the other side of the hostel where there is a living room and the "red kitchen" with patio leading to three "cottages".Beside the red kitchen, there is a hallway with private room #3 and a 6 person dorm room & one bathroom. There is also an outdoor shower for the summer months.There was another couple staying in room 3 and a guy from Norway in the dorm room.Other than that,we had the place to ourselves.Mind you,we stayed in April.I could imagine it being very "cozy" if you stayed peak season as i am sure this place books up fast.It is affordable by Friday Harbor standards and we were only a short walk to the water/ferry.The owners run a trendy little coffee shop by the ferry dock,i would definetly recommend it!
