The hotel was the same price as hostels nearby, but with the amenities of a hotel. The European showers made it hard to get ready (the toilet, shower and sink are all in the same room, but the shower has no doors and drains into the floor).
The location is ideal right on the main strip, a block from the beach and near restaurants. The downside of this spot is also the location. There is a bar attached that plays loud music until midnight each night and it will vibrate the room as well. If you're planning on being out late then it shouldn't be a problem.
The wifi is non-existent at this spot, but Starbucks is right across the way for anything important.
The garden is a pretty jungle set up set back inside the street and the staff is nice.
I doubt I would stay here again because of the shower and noise situation.
