For the price paid, there was nothing wrong with this hotel. The room was basic, but clean, and everything inside it worked. The WiFi was fast. Breakfast was actually quite good. But that part of town... is a ghost town.
When I went to have dinner, I walked into an empty hotel restaurant. (That's because the hotel had a total of four guests the night I stayed there.) I then walked along empty streets to a local eatery, called Sire's, which was very basic, but very good value for money.
If the area around it weren't so creepy, I'd give Castaway's a higher rating. However, given this reality, three out of five is being generous.
