I don't know how green it is. My rating is not appropriate. Additionally the included breakfast was terrible.

A bit bare-bones and shabby compared to what you might get in a European hostel, and the entrance through the back halls of the restaurant is disconcerting, but there’s plenty of hot water, an outlet for every dorm bed, a good breakfast included, and the location’s great. First desk staff person did not speak English, which was awkward. Other one did, but called me an unmetered taxi to the airport who I think stiffed me on the fare...

The location is perfect. Though the door of the bathroom makes so much noise. Even if you open it carefully, it makes so much noise. Same thing with the bed. Even if you move slightly it makes noise and moves a lot. It is not sturdy. There is only one plug for the electricity. There was one guy at the restaurant who was very rude. A lot of other guests find him rude too. Tissue and soap ok. Breakfast fine.But no free drinking water for guests.

I booked a private room with bath but they could not find the booking. So I stayed in a private room without bathroom. the bath and toilet were outside. The room has view of the sea.
