    Hotel is clean and tidy, all in good working order with WiFi and computers to use included. Breakfast is good and reception pleasant and helpful. Would recommend as a good place to stay for the first couple of nights.

    We were booked into this hotel with our small tour and not one of us were happy with it. Rooms are not sound proof, no tissues, no drinking water, no clock, no where to put your luggage, and as a lot of rooms are inward looking over courtyard where dining room opens from, as groups leave at all times of the night, you are constantly woken.Staff are not friendly and all round this is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in.

    Today, I woke up early (from my spot on the floor of Lelé's house) to find that my internet suddenly decided to work in her house. I was feeling pretty down most of the morning and I had to stick around until the Argentinians (Fer and Anita) returned from working because there is only one key to the house and I wanted to work as well; Lelé would be working the entire day so no worries there. Fer and Anita returned around ...

    ... thinking of the people but at least for an hour we all tried to not do it. So at least for an hour we stopped to not give energy to other people. Closing your mind is a stop of your negatives thinking, probably also positive but to be honest not all the people is thinking positive things 100% of the time. So if i get back to my own philosophy that i avoid to hurt people, is a great practice this. I put in pause my brain which is a actually a ...
