Nice clean rooms in this former Roman Catholic Orphanage.

It started out as a youth hostel in 1982 and then went a bit more upmarket as a hotel in the 1990's.

One thing I do remember is that when you had a shower and weren't very careful, the whole room was flooded. Hopefully they have improved the rooms since I last was there.

Decent breakfast though. It definitely had that student hostel vibe going on.
