The staff is great, they are amazing and very helpful. Free breakfast with homemade fresh pancakes is brilliant. Very good facilities. Cleanliness could be improved in my opinion, my pillow case was very stinky, I realized it when it was too late to complain. The location for me was just awful, in the middle of nowhere. It is okay if you have a car, then it's not a problem, but I didn't rent a car, so I lost a lot of time and money going out of this area. Just for this I would not stay here again.

I stayed in a shared dorm, the beds were comfortable, and the rooms were cool enough in the evening that the blankets were needed. The staff are all really friendly, and are from all different places. They were more than happy to give advice or come away on day trips with us. The hostel is a little out of the way, but can be got to easily enough on public transport. They also offer pickups from the town where the bus drops you which makes carrying luggage around a lot easier! I would still recommend a car though, as it is hard to see much of the attractions of the island without one. It has a really cool vibe, the owners are really funny and it shows with the way the hostel is set up, with things like "soytonto" (I'm dumb) for the wifi! Breakfast is included, and is enough to start the day well, one of the staff members is also a chef, and makes very nice food for 9-10 euro, it was a good mix of vegetarian and non vegetarian meals.

Really goods vibes, internation staff, clean place, nice garden and really good dinner! The cook (LUIS) were really impressive for the price of the service (8-9€ for person). The breakfast was simple and some times was difficult to go to the bathroom (only 2 for all the hostel), but exept that was really good :)

The hostel is a bit hard to find but its lovely to stay at. I would say its better to have a car there. If you walk towards the clif you have a great small hike there. There is a small abandoned bar in the clifs which is great to drink a beer. There is a guitar and eventhough it seems very abondaned during the day in the evening and night there are many people and it creates a good atmosphere. Somehow in the two nights I stayed here the kitchen got very messy very quickly but that depends more on the guests than the hostel. The hostel offers great advice on activities and you can use the mountainbikes for free. It was a fine stay.
