My brief stay at Hotel Vagabondo has been my worst accommodation experience to date after 6 months travelling through Central America. I made a reservation in good faith according to what their website had advertised, but found the hotel did not provide the services it promised. There was no WiFi when I arrived, although they did fix it a few hours later, there was no hot water at all, and when I went to find someone to help me, the whole place was locked up! This was just after 8am and there was not a soul to be found. The website also said that breakfast was included, but when I went to have breakfast, the restaurant was dark and deserted! So with no one around to call a taxi, I walked 20 minutes in the poring rain into the town centre to look for alternative accommodation. I found another place and got a taxi back to Vagabondo to get my things and leave. I tried finding someone to tell them I was leaving, but to no avail, so I left. I then sent them an email to explain the situation. They were incredibly rude in reply, blamed me for the situation and went ahead and charged my credit card for 4 nights' accommodation. I recommend never staying at this hotel.
