Based on the reviews from 2012, this place was a gem in its youth. Sadly, the hotel is showing its wear. The shower in our room had cracks in the tub and the worst smell... probably one of the worst showers in 18 months of travel.
On a brighter note, the upstair rooms are spacious and we had two fans. For the price, it is ok. There is even a kitchen with fridge and free drinking water. Try not to get stuck in the rooms near the kitchen, they are loud and you will always be shown to them first.
What made our stay a little frustrating was the lack of service. The family that lives here was frequently cooking taking over the entire kitchen and refrigerator. There is an upstair terrace, but it was pretty messy from the staff. The drinking water frequently ran out and we would have to ask them to replace.
But for $15 USD for a private double, I might even stay here again.
