We stayed for four nights at the Blue Sky Mining Hostel and we loved it. The location is absolutely beautiful, the staff super friendly and we got a lot of great advice, what to do in the area. We would totally recommend it and would be happy to go there again. The rooms were clean and the food in the restaurant is absolutely amazing. We had a great time!

H2o:
We stayed 4 nights in the Blue Sky Mining Hostel and therefore spend a lot of time in the H2o Restaurant. We arrived pretty late the first night but the staff still cooked us an amazing dinner and saved us. The food we had was absolutely amazing, very delicious and the portions have the perfect size. All the staff members we meet where incredibly nice and took very good care of us. We loved it and would recommend the restaurant definitely to everyone who ia searching for great food with an amazing view on the ocean!
