“Hostel, don't expect much and close your eyes to details”
Reviewed 21 March 2010

We thought this was a B&B and what a surprise to find it being a hostel/backpackers place close to the airport in a slightly run down state. Definitely not a neat and luxury place. I have to admit that I am a bit spoiled with having stayed at 4 and 5 star hotels recently.
Once you close your eyes to details and have met Marc, the host, it is an ok place. I had to decide to say recommend or not and I was torn. Depends on what you want and look for. We only needed it to have a place to stay for 3 nights. Not overrun.
Hostel style. Bunk beds, no lock on room door. Could use the fridge.
Shower was sort of clean. We asked for towels (usually not included) and got some that have been quite old (stained but clean).
The beds were not all bad (and I am picky as I sleep on the side and have an issue with being sore in the morning). We had a double bed in our room which was the best bed.
The place was pretty much clean. There was even a small TV with some channels, although they were not clear.
If you are on a budget, give this a try.
