We stay in a double room with a mattress on the floor but even without the mattress there was no room. It was above the sea but the was always out so it just smelt. To get to the room you must walk over wooden planks and in the night you can hear everyone walking and talking past your door...

There ARE locks in EVERY room. If theirs something wrong, please report it immediately, not after staying several days or after something happen.

The place was clean and small. I would say...
