We booked a room directly through the Internet. The room ($32) we requested with air was declined after we arrived at the hotel; the reason being that there was a conflict when someone else booked at the same time. We decided to give it a try anyway and got the only queen room with a fan ($26.) next to the stairs. The place was lacking with no closet to hang your clothes, nothing to place your baggage/luggage/backpack except on the dirty looking green stained floor. We hung our clothes on the window rod and on the shower curtain. The floor looked so grungy you didn't want to walk on it. The bed was comfortable enough and the fan was quiet. When we were first shown the room with air we had the clerk turn on the window air-conditioner briefly and I noticed it was quite noisy.

I noticed toward the back of the hostal was a newer section of the hostal, but it was for public and shared bathroom area.

The place has very noisy parrots, so unless you don't mind listening to them sqawk very loudly at 7 am, don't stay here. If you are an early riser, there's no problem

The 'hardy' breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs, 2 pieces of toast, juice, instant coffee, and jam.

We parked our car in front of the hostal. They do not have private parking. As we were leaving the owner came up to our window and gruffly asked if we stayed in his hotel as we were blocking his driveway. He said he was going to call the police. The staff the day before helped us unload our luggage and said our parking spot was fine.

All in all, unless you are a backpacker, don't mind hot humid weather and sqawking noisy birds as your alarm clock, then stay here. Otherwise, there are better places for the price. Needless to say, we left and stayed at another hotel the next night.

  • Liked — the bed was comfortable
  • Disliked — noisy parrots and dirty floor.
  • Tips/Secrets — There are better places to stay.
