“Low budget, awesome food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We spent only one night at the blue house mafia.
And I will break it down to a simple thing. If yoexude fine with a low budget accommodation this is a perfect place to go. The accommodation is low budget but absolutely okay. There is not a lot of space around the bed which is a bit uncomfortable but it is clean.
The people working there are super nice and welcoming.
And the food we had there was awesome. There is no menus to choose from but they served fresh, grilled fish which was so good.
Only problem is that you might get jealous of the other places around :-)
