5/5 Excellent

The dorm rooms were nice. The beds were comfortable and warm. You get a locker provided. There are toilets and bathrooms available and are always kept clean. Very spacious and hot water is good. The wifi is good also. There is a smoking areas outside with plenty of chairs and tables. There is also a kitchen which you can order food from. The free breakfast is available in the eating room. This room is kept warm during winter by a wood burner heater. The breakfast is a buffet type including bread, jams, tea, coffee, ham, tomatoes, radish, etc etc. the location is very good and really close to the bus terminal and Main Street. Tours are also available to be booked through the hostel. The staff are very very helpful and friendly and will assist you in every way possible. I enjoyed my stay here. It’s safe as it has a gated entry system which you use your supplied key to go in and out as you please.
