Great hostel in terms of helpful staff and nice communal areas downstairs (pool, book swaps, seating, films...). The rooms are clean though small and windowless, but ac is a plus. Bathrooms are shared but hot water and very clean makes up for this!
I would say breakfast could have been slightly more substantial, but not a major complaint.
However, don't book online! You'll go through all the forms and think it's been confirmed and have an e voucher and everything but its meaningless unless the owner happens to have checked it. We booked online a few days in advance and the owner had no record. When we showed confirmation they said it was still pending and to phone next time. We were very lucky they had a single room free and could put a mattress on the floor, though a discount/even apology for the mistake would have been nice! Though I can't complain about the staff as they are very helpful!
