The toaster was broken, no hot-water shower for two days, no WiFi after the first night due to an "incident" and some rain started leaking into the dorm.... Moreover, a Danish guy (?) who appeared to be managing this place was often nowhere to be found with all these problems unsolved. The only time I saw him was when he came into the common room at night without saying anything and sat on a couch, smoking cigarettes. The reason why I ended up staying here for 7 nights was because of staff-member Sam who was always helpful, friendly and tirelessly tried to fix all the problems for me.
So here is a message to the real owner of this property: your guesthouse is in a great location with a fantastic view, but it needs quite a bit of improvement and regular maintenance. Sam is the right guy to ask about what to do in order to run your business properly. Trust me.
