This has to be the worst place I have ever experienced in my life!!! April 25th 2016, I had not slept in 28 hours and was very tiered when I got of the ferry. This lady was holding a sign for rooms available and I could not wait to hit the bed and take a nice sleep. She said the room was for 30 Euros per night and I just made a quick decision to go with her. As soon as I sat in her car I knew I had a made a mistake because her car was dirty. I come from the middle east and we have a lot of sand. But It looked like all that sand in the middle east ended up in her car. The room had 4 beds, with extra bed sheets as blankets. The toilet was really bad, it had a small shower which was barely working. There were insects crawling, the water smelled like it was full of chemicals. It was not a pleasant stay at all!!!

The owners drove us from the old port and back At 150 euros for one night, the place was hands down the most expensive and the worst -by far- of our 3-week trip through Greece The owners (and maybe the old port travel agency) must have the habit of ransoming travellers in similar situations?

On our way from the beautiful Amorgos island to Tinos, we missed our boat connection in Mykonos as a strong wind delayed our arrival: it was 6pm and the last boat to Tinos was gone. We had not planned on staying in Mykonos and with 2 kids we did need some place to stay that night. The Travel agency of the old port said they could help: accommodation was running scarce, they said, but they called some hotel owner who would come down to meet us and propose a room. 15 minutes later the lady turns up: 150 euros for a room for 4, with a bathroom; a cheaper option would be 3-bed room with no bathroom. We went for the first option. For 150 euros, you get 1 double and 2 single beds crammed in a small room; the bathroom is effectively a toilet and a sink with a shower on top, in a one-square-meter room. The AC did work somehow (we had to ask for the remote control). The place was rather clean, bar one passing coackroach, but old and stripped down to the bare minimum. Breakfast not included. It's actually a family that turned as many rooms as possible in their house to rent them out to young travellers in search of the Mykonos glitter / nightlife / beach parties but unable to afford proper accommodation. Overall a very depressing setting.
