Excellent hostel. Lovely wooden building with good communal area and kitchen. Large double room with en-suite, great shower. Super breakfast: fresh juice, good coffee, cereal, yoghurt, toast, cake. Friendly staff and very well maintained, clean building. Good location close to city centre.

... robes are actually just some drying bedsheets though, so it's not that hippie really, even if they do make their own granola for breakfast (they dish up the portions themselves though, to prevent people certain cerealholics from eating them out of business).
We headed straight out to explore the town, taking in the fish market where absolutely gigantic Sea Lions greedily waited in the river and on the pontoon for fish heads and bones ...
