Cool spot
Cool little hostel that felt more like a hotel. Private room and bathroom just outside the room. 2 minute walk to the harbor and shops/ restaurants. Nice to have free coffee and a spot to make breakfast as well. Quiet and peaceful stay.

Simple, comfortable and clean.
We got to Pioneer Guest House and found the door locked. We rang the "bell" and it went to an answering machine. A few minutes of waiting and a lady finally opened the door. She was running the show by herself, multitasking (doing laundry etc...). We were efficiently checked in. The room was simple but comfortable and clean. A shared kitchen, fresh fruits, coffee and tea were available in the common area. No staff on site after 6, so a self serve sort of experience. We enjoyed our 1 night stay.
