Some people's reviews go over the top & give you a misleading expectation.
Having stayed in many hostels, this one is fine but not super overthetop wonderful as indicated by other reviews of it. The owners were pleasant and helpful. Its clean, warm, & well equipped. I do have a gripe: the rooms are too small for the no of people in them. We had 6 in ours & it was irritating that only one person could get to their cupboard at a time. That person then had to move out of the way so that the next one could get in. We had an en-suite, which was good, but with 6 of us in the room it meant that you either queued or went to the communal showers/toilets. If there had been 4 in the room it would have been excellent.
