Fodor's Review

With a loyal following of repeat customers (mostly European), this very basic, bright-yellow hostel is very much like a youth hostel (minus the youth part), and has both shared and private quarters. The clean rooms, friendly owners, dependable hot water, and laundry facilities make it popular year-round, so call ahead for reservations. Check out the stunning views on the roof terrace, or kick back in the central courtyard and read your guidebook while your clothes hang

to dry in the sunshine.
