So, good things first. Good location and pretty big rooms. Quite a nice patio. I'm not a person who complains and i don't expect luxury, i just want to enjoy holiday, but... when we entered the room, it was SO dirty, there were empty bottles, cigarettes and condoms (!) everywhere on the floor. We asked politely at the reception if a cleaning lady could do something with this mess, because apparently it has been like this for 2 days. What we heard is that it's not the fault of the staff. There are no curtains in the showers so it was a bit stressful and embarassing to use them. I mentioned a nice patio, which is really nice, shame that the staff came every evening at 10 p.m. and asked people to be quiet (although it wasn't really loud, people were just talking and enjoying the evening). We also wanted to prepare a meal in the kitchen, which was quite a challenge, because it's necessary to pay the deposit to use the kitchen and there's nothing there, no cutlery, pots etc. To sum up, the place definitely has a potential, but some changes would be nice. I stayed in many cheap hostels and i liked them all, so i don't exaggerate,
