Nice price for a private room, but facilities and the receptionist definitely leave lots of room for improvement. Bathroom had mold on the ceiling. The shower curtain had large stains on it, and was too small leaving much of the floor wet after every shower. Sheets had holes in them, and the bed cover was extremely worn. Slept in my sleeping bag. Balcony doors/windows dont lock, and no locker in the room. Staff avoided discussing planning for extra days, and tried to raise price retroactively.
It's a hostel with a homely feeling with very helpful staff. Location is just a few minutes of walk from the train station and just a few meters from the buss station and only 10 minutes of walk to the beach. I was there in January and there was heatin in the room, so that was good. Wifi is good inside the room and that is a big plus. The cleaning lady does a very good job. Restaurant is open from early morning until about 6 pm. If you are alergic to cat you need to find another place.
