This is a first for me as ive stayed at many good hotels throughout the medditeranean.
Please do not book this hostel, yes hostel, not hotel .
It is a flea infested . cockroach haven with NO swimming pool or eating and drinking facilities, evening entertainment on site.
We booked this hovel online and arrived in the middle of the night. the transfer bus set us off at the main road and we wheeled our suitcases to a locked gate, and eventually walkes round the side street os the outer apartments to find the main building.
There we found the reception desk in a reception which looked like it was from the 1970's sitcom faulty towers.
once given our key, room 212, we proceeded to the back stairwell and up the stairs to
the second floor, lift had broken down, along a unlit hallway. on opening the door we were hit by a smell which i can only describe as the bottom of a goldfish tank. i found the bed light and looked around at the room. first impressions, oh dear, the wardrobe doors were missing although the hinges were still present? the sink and bath was so old the enamel had been scrubbed off giving a matt unhygenic finish.
we had booked self catering but there was no kitchen in the room, no fridge, no airconditioning, no tv remote control,although if you wanted the last two then you would need to pay for the privelige.
the bathroom had no ventilation apart from an old filthy rotten window at the bath end,which had a stiff rusty catch and opened onto a brick internal wall?
on the balcony which looked onto the neighbours across the street, who also could have full view of your entire room, and wardrobe ,we found the air con unit which took up much of the small space.
there are no smoke alarms in the room or outside in the hallways so tough luck if someone decides to drop their ciggarette in their bedroom onto the non fire retardant foam furnishings.
the fire door was inadequate and was wedged open so you could find your room along the dark hallway. i didnt see any extinguishers for electrical fires.
the so called safe room for your luggage should you be leaving later, had no lock and the reception and room keys were left open to the general public on occasion of a toilet visit by the assistant.
On occasion i was sitting on my balcony and had a cockroach run across at my feet, on the second floor, i also have returned home with lots of flea bites and in reception had a flea jump on my arm from the dirty upholstered seats.
To sum up, i paid £56 per night for self catering apartment, with no facilities and have returned home never to return to can pastilla.
This place is being mis-sold as a hotel and whould be renamed as a "room only hostel"
Dont waste your money there are far better but none worse than this doss house !!!
