Customer review

With my spouse / partner

Backpacking / gap year

26 March 2011

Liked: Clean, helpful staff , despite booking mess, quite nice rooms.

Disliked: They did not have any record of our booking. They also have very little understanding of Hostel Bookers, they thought my deposit was part of a comission to Hostel Bookers, not part of the overall fee. Also the worst breakfast in 5 months in South America, just some crap bread and no beverages. We booked a double room with a sea view but had to stay in a dorm as they were not aware of our booking.

22 November 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Good kitchen but a little caotic, nice bar, great views from all floors with amazing sunsets and views out to the sea, ok lounge. Really helpful and nice staff

Disliked: Terrible excuse for breakfast, not worth calling breakfast really. Some plastic bread, runny butter and some jam left out in a rather caotic kitchen. Back yard little more than a patch of earth.
