Horrid

Room was small and dank! Shared bathroom was pretty grim. Cafe is miles for anywhere. Owners locked us out of the premises with an iron gate when we arrived back at 11pm. They hadn't given us a key or mentioned a curfew or any kind of lockdown. We had to mount a wall and jump down so we could get... read more

Think the filthiest, dirtiest, most stinky toilet you could picture in your mind. We have our share of travels around the world, been to a variety of restaurants, but this, my... More

I was kind of expecting a lot I guess, so naturally when things don't go as expected, you get heartbroken. I consider myself an artist because I also paint so I really wanted to visit this cafe. The cafe is cute and cozy. The ambiance was ok, cafe/art gallery-ish and tiny. There was an obnoxious group that ruined the ambiance... More
