The hostel was excellent. The location was perfect and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It didn't have much of a hostel like atmosphere since it consisted of multiple small cabins. That was fine for me since I was with friends, but I imagine if someone is travelling solo that may be a bit disappointing. Other than that it was near perfect.

Dear Akil, Thank you for taking your time to review your stay with us. We are a combined hostel and campsite, so the cabins are not part of the hostel. So we hope that all people staying in the hostel feel that they can meet others :) Kind regards Johanna Lindström
