I have stayed at the youth hostel during all my three visits to this beautiful island over a span of 2 years, and always have the same delightful experience.
The first two visits, I was travelling alone and stayed in the dorms. The bunk beds are surprisingly comfortable and if you are armed with ear plugs and eye masks, good sleep is possible even in the dorm.
My last visit was in September 2012 with my parents and we booked a room for us. They too were overwhelmed by the facilities of this youth hostel.
I have only the best things to say about this place. Location, accessibility, staff, facilities, cleanliness - it is spot on everywhere. Having stayed in a number of other SYHA hostels, this one is my favourite and am sure will continue to stay so.
