I can highly recommend this hostel, it is clean, the beds are good and through the separation of the bunk beds, I slept very well without any disturbance of the other people.
The hostel is located next to the pier so you can walk from the ferry to there. Also you need to walk if you want to go out for party. For eating out or shopping or anything else there is a lot around.
I met with people on the little outside area and we had a great time. There is an english bar just across the street, so food and drinks are within walking distance. Also it is not too far from the beach. Except the main beach which is 10 minutes walking distance.
