Beach / sunbathing

06 November 2012

Liked: Only the staff

Disliked: Everything was dirty, no cutlery in the dirty kitchen, the room was the smallest ever, it actualy was a piece of land with 2 beds, close with a locker. Too much for that money. The bathrooms were dirty

Liked: it was close to the beach

Disliked: Staff were very unhelpful, and uninterested. When we left (7.30am), the receptionist was asleep on the couch! The communal bathrooms and kitchen were very dirty, there was no toilet paper in the bathrooms and the kitchen had no gas, and therefore no cooking facilities.

Liked: Great location, helpful and nice staff

Disliked: though there was a locked gate, they left the back door open whilst brought in noise and didn't make me feel the safest. Also walls are quite thin so i got spooked in middle of the night when i could clearly hear a guy talking on the phone and thought he was in my room! But its more a case of locking your door, and not neccesarily a problem. the 4 bed dorm was small and luckily its low season so i was the only girl in it or else it would have very intimiate if i was actaully other girls!

02 February 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It was a very cozy place, with a very friendly staff that was willing to help out with literally anything that we needed. It's not a place for high-maintenence people, but it's a very good value for a buget traveller just looking for a good place to stay.

Disliked: The only problem I had with it was the bathrooms. We had a private room with a shared bathroom, and only one of the shared bathrooms had a really decent shower.
