What travellers think
Plus: Extremely friendly and informal host. Guest room and toilet/shower clean. Beds to HI hostel standards. Potentially the best location on earth for a hostel as well given the surroundings. Minus: room atmosphere and amenities comparable to a state prison. Breakfast to be made yourself in a kitchen belonging to the owners' family- not clean, not equipped, with bread that was not fresh. Public toilets in main building dirty beyond use. Grounds outside dirty- plastic, waste, paper everywhere.
