Upon arriving at the B&B, we didnt really expect much from price and the google streetview, but I was seriously impressed after entering the B&B and being shown out rooms. We were welcomed by the most enthusiastic and friendly staff possible. after our orientation of the place (including a great communal kitchen which is freely available to use) we were provided with maps and the locations of everything we should see during our visit.
our rooms were sparse (its cheap, what do you expect?) but it has everything you need for a good night sleep, but were very spacious. there was easily enough room to spread out. The balcony was fantastic overlooking the street where it is possible to see into the harbour.
Breakfast was great where if anything wasnt available, our hosts would take the time to make it, but not before making many jokes!
The place is best suited for people travelling on a budget, backpacking, and want to take advantage of the market produce by cooking something "at home".
All in all it was a very enjoyable experience (maybe a bit too full on service) andI would definately stay there again. I actually felt a bit bad for paying the asking price becasue i would have been happy paying a few more euros per night.
