    Nice view from veranda, comfortable bed

    We enjoyed the view from the veranda. The property is located halfway up the steepest street in the world so interesting getting in and out. There is no on-site parking but on street parking at bottom of hill seems safe. Owner was kind enough to let us use the washer located on the same level.

      • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities

      No parking on site, have to walk have way up a fairly steep st to get to house. Room is off a main entrance which is accessible by owners and another guest. You can lock your room when your in it but if you leave you can’t lock your door!!! Noise from owners above very noticeable especially young children and baby. No shoes inside and no alcohol .

      • Liked: Amenities

      Situated on the steepest residential street in the world, this place is great for cheap accommodation. However, it does feel like you're staying in someone's spare room. While everything was clean, I wouldn't call the place a retreat. You may fight to find parking too, as there is no off-street parking available, so you can look forward to walking up or down the hill to the car.
