The beds and especially the bed linens could use a refresh. Other than that this place is a little paradise run by very capable, attemptive and kind young people. The included breakfast, with ingredients sourced locally or homemade, really sets it apart.

Ein sehr schönes Hostel mit tollem Ausblick am Ende des kleinen Dörfchen. Ich habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt und besonders das tolle Frühstück ist es wert hier zu übernachten. Das Personal ist auch freundlich und gefühlt ständig zu erreichen. Die Gruppen Zimmer wirken wenn sie voll sind ziemlich eng und die Matratzen sind nicht so gut. Aber es gibt genug Möglichkeiten hier in den Aufenthaltsraum auszuweichen. Und der Ausblick vom Zimmer auf das Dorf und das Meer war auch sehr schön. Ich bin zufrieden und würde auf jeden Fall wieder herkommen.
