The view from the common room is what makes this hostel special. Apart from that though, it's an average YHA hostel. It's clean, has good facilities and the staff are friendly and helpful but the rooms aren't great. There was no window in mine and it was a bit cramped. It could have done with one less bed. Also, the rooms are located directly off the kitchen which isn't great.
