2/10 Poor

The view is stunning but the facility is filthy
This was a very bad experience. They could not find my booking. Then when I finally checked in my rooms were filled with other people. The place is filthy to say the least.

6/10 Good

The view from the hostel is amazing and definitely the best thing about the place. There is quite a lively atmosphere when there a few people staying but it's pretty far from the town unless you have a car (and even then you need to be careful if you've got a rental). We stayed in a double room and it was quite dirty. Not sure if the linen had been changed because there was hair, stains and lots of pieces on it. Plus I found a few bed bugs on the bed which we managed to kill with some spray. Breakfast is pretty standard toast and jam with a few apples to pick from and the food you can order for dinner isn't bad. For the price its OK but couldn't say the place was clean.
