We took a taxi to Diana rooms from Finikas on the other side of the island, not sure if we would have made it the first time without the taxi driver but once we were there the walk to the port and the cafe's was quite short and direct. If you have data on your phone you would be fine first time using google maps. Luckily the taxi driver knew the owner as he was headed out on his scooter when we were on the way in and he came back to check us in before heading out again.
It was interesting on arrival, the manager took us up to our room which was a 3 bed with a nice balcony overlooking the port but said we would have to change rooms in the morning (we did book last minute so this is understandable). The room we moved to was smalls and more cramped. The toilet was basically under the sink and the 'balcony' was basically a outside step, not room to sit or for two people at all.
We did use the roof balcony instead, not sure if this is supposed to be reserved for the tenants of the top floor room (another double bedroom, much larger than the downstairs double) as the access to their room is only up the very tight spiral stairs and onto the balcony. Either way the view was great.
They did take a passport (which Ive found pretty common traveling in hostels in Europe) but I went down the next day and asked for it back which was fine. He was rarely in his office which would have been interesting had we needed the passport sooner.
The beds werent the best matresses but for a short stay its fine. I would recommend for a short stay if you didnt plan of being inside much.
