Among the good points I'd mention the staff, who was really friendly and helpful (pick up from greyhound, guy from reception who changed the room I booked in order to allow me to check in sooner, free guided tour to lighthouse) and the location, close to beaches and the main street. However, the hostel is old and not that clean (pool, bathrooms,..) and from my experience very noisy at night - but I understand this is due to unrespectful people who chat aloud outside of the rooms at 4am and not to the hostel.
