8/10 Very Good

Good Value
It's a good, affordable place if you want to spend a day or two in stone town. The room is a bit hot but I've gone through far worse. The staff are very nice and the breakfast was simple but quite tasty: eggs, fruits, toast + jam, spiced coffee.

Great value!
We had a lovely stay here and even extended our time. It's a good budget option and the shared showers are only shared between a few rooms, so this was never an issue.
