    Central to the town center. I guess it is the cheapest. Boring town, sorry.

    On a steep hill. You do not get to choose which bed. The bunk beds have no safety which gives a feeling you could fall out the bed and down! Onto the floor. Plus booking.com takes your money, which for me as euros is not good.

    Simple hostel in great location, not the newest or nicest hostel we've stayed in but certainly met our expectations, with the bonus of a great view across the valley from the lounge window. Staff were all pleasant, easy-going, and flexible. Would definitely stay again.
