3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
One of the shower/bathrooms is so small that there's no room to put any of your items, other than on top of the toilet. A shelf or some hooks, as well as a bathmat to dry your feet outside the door, would make a big difference. Other than that, the guesthouse was fine. A pleasant seating area with outlets, and reasonably comfortable bed. There are also free storage lockers.
