I stayed here for 2 nights. The house and property are really nice and comfortable, but I thought the 6-bed dorms (in a separate building) had too many beds for the size of the room. We only had 5 people in the room and it felt really crowded. I did like that most of the beds weren't bunks, but I think bunks would have been better use of space. I found it was quite cold at night with a window open, which we needed with so many bodies in the room. There was only 1 bathroom for the 5 or 6 dorm rooms, but I never had to wait. Nice kitchen, herb garden, porch, and lounges. Nice owners, but they're not often at the desk (responsive to the bell, though). Limited but decent wifi and you can hang out at the hostel if you have a later bus, which was very kind. OK for a short stay.
