This fairly large hostel and hotel resides in a quaint building that has been refurbished on the inside to provide a comfortable and modern stay.

Both dorms and private rooms are available. Privates have ensuite bathrooms, while dorms have lockers, and modern bunks.

Free breakfast tops the list of amenities, along with free Wi-Fi and free parking.

Laundry, luggage storage, tour booking, and bike rentals are also on offer.

The onsite restaurant is also a bar, and there are other nightlife spots around the small town as well.
