The Brikette is a cheerful place with wonderful views and a range of sleeping options, from dorms to doubles and apartments. Some of the dorms have recently been revamped, with handy bunk-side USB sockets and reading lights. Pod-style bunks are expected to replace the tired current bunks in 2018. Breakfast – not included in the price – includes options like pancakes and cold-pressed juices.
The Italian-English owners are a great source of information if you're planning walks in the area, providing maps and sound advice.
