My 11 year old daughter and I stayed here in route to Ethiopia.
Every aspect of staying in this godforsaken "b&b" was a joke!! We are used to camping and staying in youth hostels, but this wad by far the craziest place I've ever stayed, and I grew up living on tents and s school bus without running water and an outhouse:)
We arrived to find out that the owner was out of the country for our entire stay! There was no lock for our freezing room with a thin coverlet.
Every window was barred shut with metal shutters besides our room and the bathroom.
We had to walk down the street for a meager breakfast of a croissant and cup of coffee.
When we first arrived I was taken to an ATM by a rough lady and commanded to withdraw my entire b&b charge as well as the hefty key deposit, the ATM didn't work fortunately for us and the woman wanted to make sure I wasn't lying so she watched me do the transaction, I gave her the 100 euro key deposit and one nights stay of money I had, she was incredibly angry that I didn't give her the entire amount!
We decided to leave after 2 nights of staying in that joke of a B&b, we quickly packed up our stuff and took a untraveled road out of the area we had 2 massive suitcases filled with donations for the orphanage in Ethiopia we were visiting! Within minutes someone I have no idea who must of spied us leaving and called the owner who in turn called my husband in the USA abs went off on him for us cheating them of what we owed. I payed over for 2 nights there for something that was not advertised accurately or honestly!
It was a terrifying event to be taken to the ATM and it even felt like we were being spied upon.. Lol now I guess!
It was like Bourne identity or something!!
