I have travelled to many places in the world in many types of accommodation; including youth hostels and 5 star hotels. Now I've stayed in a number of family run hotels and youth hostels in South America/Europe and, even if the quality wasn't what I expected, I could sympathise with the owners and staff for trying their best to make me feel welcome and provide me with the basics you'd expect from a hotel/hostel.
However I have never been so appalled by a hotel in my life. The reception looked fine when we walked in and the staff seemed genuinely nice. However when we got upstairs to the room I found:
Graffiti covering most of the walls (yes graffiti!)
Yellow stains on the bedsheets
Blood stains on the pillow
An appalling bathroom (basically more dirt than bathroom units)
We were then moved to another room where I at least had clean bedsheets. However that night I had knocking on the door at 12 midnight and constant screaming in the streets below. I've stayed in dangerous areas but never felt this threatened.
Some of the reviews on here say that the hotel is bad for those from a "western background" and good for those on a tight budget. Believe me, I don't think this hotel is fit for "anyone" when they place you in a room full of graffiti, blood and a substance that looks like urine. That's something you won't find in the pictures.
