My friend and I booked a 3 nights stay in this pension and we were very pleasantly surprised. The room and bathroom were clean and the place itself was calm; however the streets below were a bit noisy but not to the point that we couldn't sleep. The best thing about this place is its location: very central and right...

We stayed at pension Aussie two days and we did not like it. The only good thing about the pension is the place of the location. It is in the middle of the centre. The disadvantage is that it is really noisy. The beds are also not really comfortable and the wifi did not work in our room only in...

Staying here is a bit like staying at grandmas house - the type of house that is old and run down because grandma is too old to fix it. The rooms are small and basic (just a bed) shared bathrooms are very small but good enough.. Internet only works in the entry area. The host was nice however we could...

Arrives unannounced during the recent filmo festival and this was the only place we could find to stay, 25 euro each but we were happy and the proprietor was too! Great spot in the downtown of a bustling and prosperous touristic city, surrounded by Tapas with on street meter parking nearby on the nearby mountain . Could be a bit...

Pension Aussie was terrible, the beds were so uncomfortable with springs jutting out and we had two single beds (for a couple). The rooms also had no curtains so were very bright in the morning and no air con so were very hot and stuffy. Plus you couldn't open the doors to let in air as the streets were so...

I spent a night there in january. The room with two beds was very small and really noisy at night. The sheets (like all the place) smell stale tobacco. It was awful. I paid 40 euros for that during the low season which is quite expensive compared to the others pensions.

This is one of the cheaper pensions in town but it is one of the better ones in that price range. The 2 bathrooms were cleaned multiple times a day. Most / all? rooms have a balcony overlooking the street which is lots of fun. True, your room will not cleaned while you are staying there. Therefore, you should negotiate...

Describe the service I experienced? None. I chose this hostel as it was supposedly run by an australian and i was a little homesick. The occasional time i found ANY staff, there was one woman who was clearly also the cleaner. The room was cute, a double bed to myself in my own room, and the location is beautiful and...

Pension Aussie is great for the budget traveller! Admittedly it's been nearly 2 years since I was there, but so long as it hasn't changed dramatically, it's a good place to stay. Very basic, but cheap and with friendly, helpful owners. And it's right in the old centre, an easy walk to the beach and surrounded by great tapas bars!
