The size of the hostel was nice, wasn't crowded but still fit a lot of people. The breakfasts were good, but it would have been nice to have some items to take with you (for those of us not super hungry in the morning) even just an apple, or a hard boiled egg. The bunk beds in the female dorms were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean. Quiet hours were a bit harsh, as my friend and I weren't allowed to casually chat in the kitchen at one point. Nice that the bus stop is so close.

I had to cancel due to poor weather forecast, but hope to be visiting soon. I would like to know at hwat time of year one must reserve the private 2 or 4 person rooms as they were booked solid quite early. Please let me know when you start to take reservations for them.
