This property is located in a good area, walking distance to beach and town. There are a local food market right in front of property with a supermarket next door for your needs. It is a hostel but with all you need for your stay. Rooms are clean with private bathrooms and air con, rooms have been refurbished recently. No parking on site but free parking in city if you manage to find one. Staff are helpful although they can forget to get back to guests. Rooms are very close to one another so can be very noisy. To have a towel hanger in bathroom would be great instead of a chair. Overall a good place to stay and I would recommend

There was no lift or room for a disabled person and we had to find another hotel. You took the money anyway.

Das Hostal liegt zentral. Gleich daneben ist ein Parkhaus. Zum Strand sind es 10 Minuten zu Fuß und zur Altstadt 5 Minuten zu Fuß. Die Zimmer sind schlicht aber sauber. Das Bad ist neu. In der gehobenen Kategorie gibt es einen Balkon zur Straße hin. Es ist nachts ruhig und die Klimaanlage funktioniert gut. Die Zimmer sind jedoch klein, das Doppelbett ist 135 cm x 190 cm. Das Preis - Leistungsverhältnis stimmt.
