Only the deluxe double room was available for $60. This was more than what they told us on the phone when we called the previous night. The room was average, the bed cover was too small for the bed and the place was extremely noisy. Breakfast was pathetic (toast and some fruit), there weren't even plates left and when I asked for two, I only got one which had just been used. When we got back to our room after breakfast, the cleaning lady had entered our room with her own key and had made the bed, sprayed a horrible spray around that made me unable to breathe and almost vomit, and folded our dirty underwear. I really wasn't happy with this, especially because checkout time is 11am and this happened at 9.30 am. The reception staff apologized very friendly for this though. It's on the other end of town and for a backpackers this was definitely not worth the price, although the support for the genocide memorial is a good thing. Maybe it is worth the money when you can get a cheap bunk bed.
