Hosting team was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and cosy. Very well organised kitchen.
The host Yoko was very friendly and helpful. The location was excellent, close to town and also surrounded by beautiful hills. The outdoor area was very pleasant.
Even though I advised the hostel, on the day I arrived, that I would only be staying two nights instead of the three I had prepaid for, they refused to refund any of the third night (I left Hamner after two days anyway). My advice is to avoid prepaying with this hostel.
There was a guitar to play
The kindness of the staff. The cleanliness and the fire place that was going on arrival, was a nice surprise.
The thin walls that you can hear what's going on. Windows with safety /security latches would be good for ventilation. The Internet was a little jumpy, keep re connecting to the server, when it there to re connext again.
