At this guesthouse I saw a staff telling a guest to keep the door of their room closed or the mouse therein would get out in the hall. The staff concluded "problem solved" when the mouse ran into the linen closet. It's probably good that the mouse moved into the linen closet because maybe it will eat the linens and they will buy new ones. The linens are worn out and thin and look about 30-40 years old. Same with the towels. The two-person beds have one-person blankets (if you can call that thin old dirty thing a blanket), turned sidewise to make them look like two-person blankets folded down. They replaced the entry floor carpet, but once you get past the reception floor, you see that the old carpet is still crusted over with years of spill and sick.
This place is cheap on the surface but finds little ways to charge you more. They tell you they have to put you temporarily in a room with an air conditioner until your (cheaper) room with a fan is free, then they charge you for the air conditioner. "Oh you look hot; have a bottle of water," they say, and then your bill comes for the bottle of water.
The rooms vary. In one room, the door to the toilet (just a door, not a full wall to the ceiling; the toilet is IN the room) is so close to the front of the toilet (a few cm) that you physically cannot close the door when you sit on the toilet. In some rooms, you can feel the hard springs in the mattress.
Also, the "pool" in the back is barely twice the length of an adult human body.
Pay just a few euros more. Go somewhere else.
