8/10 Very good

Room was way to hot
Although the hostel was pleasant, the room was uncomfortably warm and disrupted the sleep of all four occupants, leading to further disturbance. Despite this, I would consider returning in the winter when the temperature is cooler.

This is a great place in the rocks. Accommodations are simple but the atmosphere is good with a mix of families, couples, and people working remotely. The communal kitchen allows for people to prepare there own meals if desired.
