Great Hostel/Hotel
Very friendly and helpful lady who runs the place. The rooms and bathroom were very clean and the bed was one of the most comfortable we had. The shower pressure was terrific. Breakfast was the standard continental set up with our lady offering more if we wished. She also organised our taxi to the airport for the next morning. We were a little concerned by the collection of bars offering "exotic dancing" that were in the area but we experienced no problems with noise and had complete confidence in our host''s security. The location was an easy walk into the centre of town. We'd definitely stay again.
