Lonely Planet 2007: "Our pick: Port Inn - The comfortable sitting lounge and friendly reception at the Port Inn will have you dropping your bags at first sight. Recently renovated rooms are simply furnished, with neat bedding and spotless bathrooms. Dorm rooms are comfortable but you'll need to book ahead to reserve a lower bunk – this place does get busy. There's a communal kitchen with an attached lounge where guests can watch TV or browse the bookshelf. Breakfast is prepared by the family that runs the place and includes a freshly cooked omelet, juice, toast and spreads. Laundry service is available. The owners are also a great source of local information and can give tips on transportation and will even help book you a place on the Baha'i Gardens tour."
