what happened to me there made me awful image about Cos island itself. When I arrived on the island, I didn't have any information and hotel accommodation. In just 5-minute walking, I was spoken to by a woman with the invitation card of that hotel, saying that they can give me one night stay by 20€. As I said, I didn't have any reservation for a hotel, so I decided to have a look of that hotel with the invitation card.
On the way there, the Greek woman suddenly talked to me and advised that I should tear off my invitation card and look for another cuz it sucks in everything. But I went there(that's my first mistake...)
At the reception, the manager said "we have never offered a 20€ room. It's from 30€, but we can make it to 25. After their offer, the manager's father showed me the room, and mistakenly I said "nice"(that's my second and biggest mistake...). Then, surprisingly and stupidly the word "nice" seemed to be translated as like "yes, I stay here" for him. He changed his attitude and aggressively tried to charge me like "pay, pay, pay now!" Being surprised at his pressure, I paid 25€ in front of the room.
But after that, I somehow got to wanna look around other hotels, so I asked them to give me back 25€ once...
It was too late.
The manager does not even listen to my opinion and said "you said yes! and you paid. It's finish. No! Everything is finished!!!!"
What's finished?? or what's started???
I didn't even enter the room, put my luggage, and most importantly, I did not pass my passport to them. They don't know my name, my nationality, and my passport number. I DO NOT CHECK IN!!!!! So, I had no choice but staying at the hotel, actually without official check-in.
Police in Cos also sucks. What they say is the same as the manager.
Cos island... if you have a travel alone, I recommend not to go there.
