I stay in a lot of hostels. This one was by far one of the best. It looks like an old manor house and once inside it is clean and open. The rooms are small, so you don't have to share with many people and there is a big bathroom in each hallway. Our room had a little balcony that looked over the pool, and even in winter we sat out there in the sun. The staff are super helpful and breakfast is included. Loved it.
Only con, was that there was no lift, so carrying a 30kg bag up a flight of stairs was not fun.
