We loved this hostel so much! Although in the guidebook, we got the impression that the town was not an exciting place to see, we loved it! This has a true fisherman's feel to it, with industrial and traditional architeture. The HI building was beautiful, lots of facilities to share between everyone staying. The views from the second floor were amazing. We also got a quick dip at the local swimming pool on the way out of town, nice way to end our stay there.
