Good news: The owner is friendly. Although this is an older building, it has been completely renovated and modernized inside. The kitchen and bathrooms are new and sparkling clean. The 4 bed female dorm room is extra large with plenty of space for luggage and moving around. Located on the main street of town. Bad news: No parking space provided, must park on street. The showers have a knob that gives about one minute of hot water when pressed then cuts off. Have to keep pressing the knob.
