Liked: I only stayed at the House Hostel one night but it was an absolute pleasure. The guy who runs it could not have been more helpful in giving information on the local area, such as where to eat, what to see and do etc. The hostel itself is also lovely and has a really pleasant atmosphere and character that I haven't seen in a hostel previously.
