I was staying there in January for three nights. We booked room in advance choosing it from LP travel guide. We knew that we need to expect shabby conditions, but we were shocked what we found there.
Room costed 20$ per night. It was cheaper option with shared bathroom. We arrived very early in the morning.
The guy who lead us to our room was really creepy. On the first floor we found small rooms built like animal cages with doors like from the basement. In general our room looked like prison cell, windows had no glass, mosquito net was tore. On the wall we could see big stains of fungus. Room was extremly dirty. Between wall and celling was the big gap so you could heard everything what was happaning on the other side. The guy next door was hawking for few houers in the morning very laudly so we coudn't sleep at all.
The guest house is located near every possible temple so from 4.00am you can hear Hindu temple, mosque and church. We was sleeping with light on because we were affraid that something will crawl out from the holls in the walls.
Bathrooms where shared like I already said, toilet squated. Of course we didn't expect luxury but this was so horrible that you couden't even come in. In shower you have only cold water. In general showers almost looks like toilets just without... you know without what.
Brakfast was included in price. It was ok. Like everywhere - eggs every day.
OK to don't be so grumpy I can say that at reception during the day there is a very nice lady who can help you with organizing taxi sight seeing. The taxi driver is her father who dosen't know english but he is very nice and helpful.
I can say also, that for more than 20$ you can rent rooms on the second floor which are renovated and we heard that they have better standard there. And all rooms have private bathrooms.
Big + They have their own lift from bus station. If you have reservation you can ask some of the taxi drivers about that. If not, even if you want to stay in this hotel you can't use it. Unfortunately taxi isn't free.
