My stay at the hostel was fine. The staff member on duty the day I arrived was really friendly and helpful. The hostel seems understaffed. I didn't see many staff. On the day I left there was no one in the office at check out time. The location is great if you want a quiet place in the summer. It is right across from a school so maybe it is not quiet during the school year. It is also far from the train station and the center of town.

For those travelling by train: Keep in mind that there are no buses which pass the hostel, so you will have to walk all the way from the railway station. Depending on your fitness, it may take up to 35 minutes!
