As I'm sure you've read, this place has great breakfast, and it does. It's clean and cozy with a very intimate atmosphere. Free coffee all day, WiFi and hot showers. However we weren't really crazy about this place. The dorm rooms are mattresses on the floor, which are comfortable but the room has a slanting roof so if you're over 5'4'' you are constantly having to bend your neck, which is really annoying. It gets really cold at night so make sure you ask for an extra blanket.
The sisters work extremely hard at keeping the place clean, and that it is! If you want to book anything they are really helpful. Something else one might consider helpful are the 100 signs posted everywhere in the hostel with directions/rules for guests.
They offer laundry service but we would recommend taking it somewhere else. It was overpriced and our clothes came back in a wrinkled ball and still damp. For the region this is sub-par considering everywhere else we have taken our laundry has come back folded and perfect for half the price.
Make sure you label EVERY item of food you buy, or they will take it and lock it away for themselves. Instead of leaving out left-over oils and seasonings that guests leave, they take them also, so you have to buy all your own stuff.
Would probably only stay here again for the breakfast and free coffee.
