    The basics are here

    When staying in a hostel I expect a clean bed, shower/bathroom accessibility, and convenient location. You get all of those staying here. No frills or anything extra, but if the bare necessities are what you seek, stay here. If you are easily put off by some of the nicer amenities of a hotel or even more expensive hostels, this place is not for you.

    It’s what you make of it.

    This place was great! I haven’t stayed at many hostels before, but the people who came through were lovely and you absolutely can’t beat the location. My bed was pretty awful... you could feel every single spring in it poking you the entire time you slept on it. But I felt some of the other beds and it’s apparently hit or miss if your mattress is awful or not. They also don’t provide towels. Staying here is really what you make of it. d stay here again... and just cross my fingers for a better bed. Also, one shower for potentially 10 people at a time in a cabin was a bit hectic a couple nights.
