The staff was a bit cold with the exception of one very nice girl at the desk. The breakfast was okay. The building was a little creaky but with a marvelous view. The thing that really put me off about the place was security. There were no lockers in the rooms. The doors had standard keys which any careless tenant could forget to lock from the outside upon leaving. And the place seemed to be under construction by a group of large men who were genuinely threatening.

Hostel en décrépitude, sale, chambre faite pour une personne normalement. Jolie vue et personnel serviable. Petit-déjeuner douteux. A éviter ! Pas fait pour les touristes.

Nightlife & entertainment tip

There doesn't seem to be any. The Grand Hotel bar is only open two nights a week so we had a nice beer in a harbourside café (that does pizzas and takeaways).
