It's a bit out of the way
The hostel is located off of the main road and outside of downtown. It's cheap, clean, and the staff are polite, but it isn't very convenient. Also they advertise free breakfast but do not provide one. They have hot water for tea and then send you up the street to the local store to buy bread, as that's the only thing available to eat in the store.
