Matthew Ferguson

23 March 2008 Matthew would recommend this property

Liked: As the only hostel on the island, the budget traveller doesn't really have much of a choice, but the experience was at least satisfactory, although the title "Youth Hostel" is a bit misleading, given the 70-some-year-old man sleeping in the bunk beneath mine.

Disliked: Matthew left no negative feedback.
