To start with, when my friends and I arrived off our night bus at 11:45pm we were told they'd over booked our room. We paid a £9 deposit 2 weeks ago for 2 double private rooms, both if which we were told were booked up. The receptionist then told us that it was because they were sick so couldn't leave and therefore he couldn't email us to let us know. So were were given a dorm room. It was just us in there so we settled for this. I can't tell you how infested with Mosquitos the room was!!..my friend also found BED BUGS in her bed!!!!!!!!!!!!!..the worst place by a long stretch where we've stayed. The room was dirty, the sink was blocked, or never know so many bugs and Mosquitos to be in on room and then the bed bugs. Only one bed out of the 4 were okay, so the 3 of us all bunked in together. Cut a long story short we were then kicked out of our dorm the next day and forced to move into our private rooms, we were only staying 2 nights but wanted to leave. However we were told we'd have to pay for the room anyway. They do have a pool, however my friend sliced her foot on a broken tile getting out!!!!..loads of missing tiles and the water is dirty. We've all travelled all over Asia and South America and were were seriously unimpressed with this place!!
