8/10 Very Good

Excellent budget hostel
The Hostel provides good budget accommodation. A good location near the town centre, on a road out of town. Very friendly and informative manager who keeps the place in good order. Very adequate (if unexciting) breakfast, with good coffee. Secure on-site parking. There is a nice shaded seating area, as well as a jacuzzi. We enjoyed exploring the area (nature park and coast), as well as a castle and huge monastery in the town.

2/10 Poor

Run away from this tourist trap
I cant remember a worst experience. Authorities should close this establishment down. Owner needs a lot of study to be allowed to run the simpliest means of hospitality. There was nobody at the place when we arrived. We called the owner and he was on vacation and unaware of our reservation. We had to wait about an hour in the middle of the sidewalk and in the cold weather until he arrived. Then he went to look for the reservation and, surprisingly, he found it. But then the room wasnt ready. He travelled and left the room not ready. The whole hotel seemed like a dirty refrigerator, so cold, humid and not smelling well. When the room was finaly ready (so to speak), there was no hot water for a shower. We had to do it in another room. Our room was so cold and humid that a supplied heater was not enough. Two other guests told us that they are left with the keys and owner is rarely around. Breakfast, as the owner calls it, is a do it yourself old kitchen with products scattered in a small fridge and shelves. He said we could help ourselves but we did not have the stomach for it. As soon as we woke up early in the next morning, we left. Again, there was nobody around.

Very friendly people
This hostel is more like B&B. It's very good value for money. Close to the monastery but a bit away from the bus terminal. The owner and the host were very welcoming. Very limited breakfast is provided.
