Liked: It was really comfortable place to stay, the staff was proactively helpful and the breakfast was excellent, better than in many mid-range hotels I've visited.

Disliked: There was just one surprise and it wasn't a bad one - the website stated that wifi comes with a small fee, actually it was for free.

Liked: It was only walking distance to the town for us to shop. We could come and go as we liked we had no certain time to be in at. We all got a room together.

Disliked: the room was a bit to small for 6 people. The blankets and pillows were very thin although the room was always warm.

Liked: It was extremely secure - there are no front keys to the door as the staff lets you in no matter what time of day it is. It's clean, nice showers, friendly atmosphere. The owner William was super helpful and cooked a free hot breakfast for everyone each morning. And one night when I wasn't feeling particularly well, he made me his cure-all hot whiskey and sat around chatting with a few of us. It's a good place.

Disliked: No complaints. It's a great hostel.
