Booked and paid for a triple room online and was travelling with 2 other friends when we arrive they say they never received our booking and are "full" but will take us to their other guesthouse. Then they say we can walk its inly 600metres away. Umm no way not with back packs and hot sun!, We refuse and ask for our money back. Manager was irate and extremely aggressive. Then we notice in his book our name and point to our actual booking. He then admits there is no triple room for us but can put us in 2 double rooms with shared bathrooms which are suddenly now free at the travellers house. again we refused and stood our ground and we eventually got our money back in cash. We walked 10m down the road and stayed in a really nice hotel and it was CHEAPER. Avoid!!!!!
