Oooopps... A hostel not a "Guesthouse"

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 19, 2008

On arrival discovered a problem – was supposed to be a B&B, but was actually a hostel - no smoking! Young man at the desk tried to reach the manager – I had a confirmed reservation for a guaranteed (private) smoking-permitted room. Took a few hours but finally got it straightened out. I can smoke in my room only, not in the rest of the building. Good thing that I always travel with my own travel ashtray (an old small candy tin). That was one of the excuses – that they didn't have any ashtrays!

Rooms exactly as advertised on their site. The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

The entire building inside and out has been renovated and is new. It is clean and well cared for.
The bed is firm and comfortable. The rooms are those of a better hostel, basic, but with additions of plants and photos to add cheer to the building.

The breakfast is good. There is a plentiful supply. There is a fully equipped kitchen for guest's use. Helps to warm up the coffee in the morning in the microwave :)
25 Euro a night includes breakfast for a private room.

All told, well worth the price for the location, the staff, the cleanliness and the comfort.

Only 2 negatives from my point of view:
1. I am an older woman and my room was on the top floor - too many and very steep stairs. Dorms are on the lower floors.
2. The charges for laundry are too high. I didn't use it for that reason.

Unique Quality: Location is fantastic. Walking distance to everything in Old Town and part of the newer portion of the city.

The kitchen is very well supplied. You can cook anything you want there.

Directions: Clean, well located in middle of Old Town, nearly on top of Nebet Tepe, a short distance from the Archeological Reserve.
