Fabulous 8.6 From 21 reviews

Poor 2.0
1-2 rooms per floor, so you can expect to climb up to 5 floors to get to your room WITHOUT a lift. There was problem with water pump and there was no water overnight. Lot of mosquitos wirh stagnant water out on the street. Charged me for a stain on my bedsheet when I was checking out (which i do not feel i caused and I was in a rush to leave for the airport, so just paid it). Possible scam. Overall not worth it

Poor 2.0
Need to made clear that it's a shared room.
Wanted a room for myself wasn't made clear at the start when I booked and paid that I would be sharing with 9 other guests who are complete strangers then there was no refund after I had paid for 3 nights.

Exceptional 10.0
Amazing value, even better staff!
I thought this place was amazing for the price. Very close to the main walking street and restaurants and stores. Still far enough away to not be loud. Very clean place. The staff was AMAZING!!

Nice Stay
Very comfortable room. Bathroom adequate. Bar and food service not so good but plenty nearby. No elevator is the biggest let down.
