The staff were very friendly, they accepted me at the last moment and still cheerfully showed me the facilities (kitchen etc).
Wi-fi was fast and reliable. The building is a gorgeous place, set up on the hill...about 10 minutes walk down to the water and about 2-5 minutes walk to the train station.
Although a little on the pricey-side, for a hostel with only 1 power pt in my dorm room! The rooms were clean, as were the bathrooms, which proved (at least on my floor) to be quite sizeable. The patio receives full sunlight in the morning which is lovely. The kitchen is a decent size, with good facilities....microwave, stove, kettle, pots/pans etc...not to mention a free food shelf in the fridge...it meant I got bonus parmesan cheese for my pasta and when I left...I could donate my bread and spreads:) Nice!
