Reasonable YHA within an old school house. The hosts were very helpful at arranging transport and accommodation for the Nydia Track; they actually run one of the I-sites in the village. Unfortunately the hostel felt a bit run-down and did not seem to attract so many guests. The kitchen was not as clean as it could be, but was ok.
