My friends and I stayed here in Feb this year. It was a dirty and dismal experience. The rooms that we were given were no more than cells with no natural light, broken toilets, misbehaving showers and an unwelcome visitor in the shape of a mouse that shared my room for two of the three nights that we managed to endure. We were eventually moved to one of their sister guest houses which whilst basic and with the usual dubious electricity and bathroom situations was acceptable. This was certainly budget accommodation but not budget prices. The food in the 'dining room' on the terrace was ok although hygiene was very questionable. No effort was made to clean or tidy even after the monkeys had broken in (the area is caged) and wrecked the tables to get at the sugar. It is a great shame this accommodation is of such a poor standard as the location is fantastic and in the right hands would be a wonderful place to stay.
