Under no circumstance should anyone stay here. They claim to be a bed and breakfast, or possibly an inn, but they barely qualify as a hostel. I haven't stayed in a place this grimey since I backpacked through Peru when I was 22.
They were unquestionably overpriced. Essential 'hotel' services such as internet and parking were unavilable/limited. Front desk staff exaggerated prices of local parking lots by four fold to make their own look cheaper. When in reality, theirs cost three times as much and you had to hand them over your keys so that some teenager could shuffle around cars to fit more into their lot. Not to mention, when they shuffle around your car, they change all your mirrors and settings within your car. You can hear every noise from every room throughout the entire building The ventilation is so poor that you will wake up with a build up mucus in your nose and throat (they request not to open windows because of air conditioning). The 'hostel' is in the worst part of town. There are crack dealers around the 'hostel' at night. p.s. bring your own toiletries because the bathroom is not properly stocked, and don't bring lots of luggage, the room will be so congested that you will have no room to walk.
