6/10 Good

The property was clean, but the bathrooms were poorly stocked. there were a few bathrooms that did not have soap or were running out of toiles paper and paper towel, and there was now extras to restock with. There was a sign advertising that you could store luggage for the day incase you were catching a later boat. This area was the front entrance under a table. fully viewable from the front window and no supervision.

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.

Room was fine, nothing special. The best party of the stay was the the location of the building.

8/10 Very good

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.
