Decent cheap option
This budget guesthouse is first on the left as you climb the hill from the dock and is a good choice despite its basic feel.
Don’t be put off by the dark ramshackle restaurant entrance – the rooms upstairs are above the restaurant rooftop and therefore don’t feel claustrophobic as you would expect. Some rooms are tiled, some have wooden floors and all have rock-hard beds that jar your back as you sit on them. The hot-water bathrooms have seen better days but they get the job done. Aside from a bed, you’ll get a bedside table and free WiFi. Prices are flexible when they aren’t full. Along with Dockhoun Guesthouse, it offers the cheapest rooms with private bathroom in town.
