Very funny guy and he had a lot of great recommendations for us of what to do... More

I stayed in a spacious double room with shared facilities with... More

Good and cheap place to stay, near of the city center. You can go and buy some food at the supermarkets or have some food at the places in the city center. Very near to buy tickets for the attractions. Staff and kitchen really nice!
