For the price of a room here, you can get a MUCH nicer place at a real hotel just a few blocks away. It's not worth ANY amount of savings to stay here.
We knew we were in trouble when our taxi from the airport had no idea where this was, and instead decided to consult some local kids in the area and have them lead us the rest of the way.
We also knew there were issues when we went to pay our balance and leave the next morning, and we couldn't find anyone to pay (the owner was out?).
You're basically walking through some VERY disgusting homes to get to the place. If you are interested in seeing "third world" up close and personal, this is it.
We apparently had the "best" room in the place, but it was the grossest place we stayed in during the entire trip. Also, we caught scabies from this room. With the cost of medicine to treat the scabies and the extreme discomfort, we could have been put up at a four-star hotel for the night, instead.
The other travelers here were the opposite of friendly. We got a lot of nasty looks from "transient" types (you know - the kinds who ask for your change at Haight and Ashbury in SF) and felt totally uncomfortable being out in any of the shared space.
Do yourself a favor and DO NOT stay here. The website is the most misleading thing I've ever seen. It's in an inconvenient area and trashy. Not worth a buck or two.
