3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Just below average backpackers house, with clean rooms, but no breakfast included, no water or snacks on sale, away from everything, strange neighborhood. Heaps of cats sneaking around.

First contact with the owner happened in a large empty lobby, with dirty linen on the floor, littered papers and cigarettes butts on a table.

Strange atmosphere, not worth the price. Would not recommend.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

Stayed 9 days in this charming guesthouse. As a nomad I have periods when I need to get work done so having a nice apartment style room with wifi was a good thing. Clean and functional place and quiet too as there are no parties or beach dogs around. Only thing lacking is a restaurant, but there's a kitchen that you can use for your own cooking.

A big plus comes from that comfortable bed with quality sheets, a luxury after weeks of traveling in cheap guesthouses! :)

Stayed October 2011, traveled solo
