Some of the front rooms, opening onto the main street of the pedestrian zone, have a balcony and can be cause for distraction during the stay.

At the top of the building, the terrace on the city and overlooking the sea may also be a good place to relax and read or abstraction.

In the breakfast room, with an area of 60 m2, covered type of tiles sec. XVII, remember the times where many guests stayed here and lived for long periods, feeling as if they were in their own homes.

    It looks like a hotel from an old movie. Everything is kinda old and crappy, staff who do not really speak english, moldy bathroom, water from the tap is sometimes browny, but I loved it. It has a specific visual, I think Wong Kar Wai could make his next movie there.

    Location was excellent, right in the middle of everything. You get what you pay for, basic rooms but good for the price. Seemed to be no receptionist only the cleaning ladies who would check you in after you ring the bell and wait around and who didn't speak any English so had no chance of asking for suggestions ect. No lockers or anything to store personal belongings and no real kitchen facilities only a little stove top

    It's an old hostel in the middle of the old city. The room is small with a window and a washing basin. But when I opened the tap, brownish water came out first. The comunal kitchen was very basic with not many utensils and a stove with only 2 plates. I had only contact with an elderly lady who checked me in and cleaned the rooms but who did not speak any English. At least it was very cheap.
