Incredible bargain! Seriously, I don't know how the owner even makes a profit. I paid about $40 for two nights. He served my girlfriend and me free delicious dinner two nights in a row, made phone calls for us for free, and even accompanied us to our bus company office to catch an early morning bus. He saw us off to make sure we didn't miss the connection and he paid for the taxi to the station. He also served us half a dozen cups of tea. He must have spent about 20% of what we paid for the room just on these couple of extras. Also, the internet was much faster than what I'm used to when travelling, and the room felt very secure from theft as I left my stuff there all day.
Now the room was a bit basic, but clean, and the bathroom would probably only seem normal to seasoned budget travelers. The owner had pretty limited English, so it'd be good for a traveler to have a little Arabic handy. Those were really the only downsides though, and overall I'd highly recommend this hotel for budget travelers.
