Liked: I am normally not a fan of staying in hostels but this one was great. It felt like summer camp, great spaces indoors and outdoors to hang out. Full kitchen, easy to make your own food. Rooms were big and clean. The staff was very nice and helpful. It is in a great location, just off the main street. Easy walk to hiking trails, train station, and grocery stores.

Disliked: The bathrooms got a little dirty- would recommend showering right after they have been cleaned. The food they sell at the hostel is pretty expensive and not very good.

Liked: Beautiful views, very friendly and helpful staff. Easy to find, and a great value for what you get. The free breakfast in the morning was great, and the availability of food at the hostel for lunch/dinner made finding inexpensive food easy. Would definitely stay there again

Disliked: Bathroom curtains kept coming up and sticking to my legs. Also in the bathroom, there is no place to put your clothes, just one hook outside the shower. The guy/girl bathroom combo was disconcerting at first, and slightly grew on me, but having the separate genders' toilets in each gender's assigned shower area would probably be better.
