The staff at Godby hostel were amazing, they dropped us off in town on Sunday because there were no buses or public transport running during the weekend. They also helped us plan our itinerary and gave us a map with all the sights to see around Godby, and even tried booking a restaurant for us for dinner. We also rented bikes from them, and because we only needed them for half a day they gave us a discount for that as well. Would highly recommend this hostel!

Very poor staff, one of them had a very poor level in English, and most of them not very concerned. They don´t explain you anything and you have to ask for everything... never seen that in the rest of Finland...
