I loved the location and overall personality of this hostel. I only wished that the staff had more of a preference for recommending local faire. I love recommendations by locals for brew and food, I felt a lack of passion from the staff when I inquired. Otherwise a great place. Remember that you can reserve a bed, which I did not know and as a traveler who is nearly 60, I prefer a lower bunk, but still enjoyed my stay!
