Not recommended for foreigners specially. No Hot water, rooms are not cleaned, staff is not professional at all. Local parties used to drink... More

Friendly owner. Initially the room we were in were a bit dirty and not up to scratch. But the owner quickly rectify the situation to move us to room upstairs (which were more expensive) but they gave us discounts. Happy with the service.
