It takes about 10 minutes to walk from central station to the harbour where the boat moors. There is no pub or "coffee shop" nearby hence you can enjoy the tranquility at night. The boat is not large, nonetheless it stays stable even in the cruelest wind from the Arctic Ocean. The staffs were very kind and helpful, and the quality of breakfast was definitely beyond what you could have expected from a hostel.
As for the disadvantages, the twin room we have stayed was rather small and basic, the walls were thin and there were merely two toilets and bathrooms (one for male, another for female, with limited availability) for all the guests, and finally, just like any other hostel, the wifi was unsatisfying.
Overall, the pros outweigh the cons considering Vita Nova is not a luxurious cruise but an economic houseboat hostel.
