The owners are fantastic. Phillip and his father were very good hosts and my wife and I enjoyed talking to them. I was here two summers ago, and had the best hostel breakfast I've ever had. But our visit this year was in September and we did not get breakfast because our stay was not in the high season. :( But, early September was still very warm and there are great sights to see on this island. Highly recommended hostel on a fantastic island.
