Honteux du vol
C'est une écurie pas un hôtel Pas de drap pas d'eau pas d'électricité pas de serviettes pas de papier toilette une vulgaire cabane en planche adossée à la colline avec des trous partout des sacs poubelles qu'il faut enjamber Un froid glacial obligé de dormir tout habillé C'est honteux aucune personne responsable la nuitée prélevée par l'intermédiaire de hôtel . Com et le tour est joué Je ne comprends que ce site puisse proposer de tel hôtel pour 30& un scandale
