Both tyres were lacking in tread and the air pressure was below the recommended psi level. BUT to buy this bike was a damn awesome decision as it came with a spare...

There's no enough words to describe this place. Salvo, one of the workers, told me before I checked in that if you check in here your life will change. He wasn't lying.

A bit noisy at night, but safe and secure: each dorm had keypunch locks. A cheap place to stay with a great location - close to the main street/railway station. I arrived very late & had to call to gt let in - no worries!
