What a beautiful place. No improvements needed - it was lovely. Maybe a few more hooks in the showers but that's about it.

A very beautifull building with a very clean kitchen with a lot of equipment! Beautifull views from the hostel, we saw a romantic sunset! Reading a book in the 'lounge' is very relaxing. To improve : tell people when they arrive about the sounds of the lighthouse. In the middle of the night, the lighthouse started to make of lot of 'beep's'. At that moment I remembered to have seen ear plugs at the reception desk in the evening, but at that moment I didn't realised why they were there...

Laut wegen Sicherheitstüren, nachts Nebelhörner des Leuchtturms, enge und kurze Betten. Verbessern: Bessere Betten und Türen, die nicht zuschletzen.

Am Ende der Straße wäre ein Hinweisschild zur YHA wünschenswert, da man sonst die Einfahrt zum Leuchtturm nimmt.
