To be fair, if you like rustic, as in a gussied-up camp barracks, then you'll love this place. The positives: service/staff were nice, basic breakfast is included, room clean, nice homemade bread, modern bathroom. The devil is in the details; the whole concept of a retrofitted school is interesting, there are attempts to "cute-ify" with a few deco touches, but the superimposed massive bunkbeds reminded me of mining camps I worked in as a student (I can't imagine how housekeeping staff must hate climbing up those steep ladders to change the bedding!). The tired & worn furnishings are leftovers from the old school (or from a very tacky yard sale), cheap linoleum floors, pillows in plastic wrappers (more hygienic, I guess, but the weird crinkling noise is distracting when trying to sleep). The worst part was the RIDICULOUSLY SLOW wifi- best to not even tell anyone you have it- it took 30 minutes to open my email, and I spent 2.5 hours trying to book my next hotel & ferry, finally gave up, went to a hotel a few kms away & begged to use their wifi (done in 5 minutes); and no, it's not MY laptop. The wifi was stupidly slow, kept disconnecting and crashing, so if you need to have net for family or work , this isn't for you. As for one descriptor as "waterfront", well you can see it in the far distance, but waterfront it is not. For $105 plus taxes, quite frankly, I felt cheated- I know accommodations are scarce in this area, but this place needs to up its game.
