After seeing this place advertised online at $10 per night including breakfast we arrived to find that breakfast is not included and is an extra charge.
After sampling breakfast we found it very basic and not at all what is stated on the menu, the person working in the 'breakfast' room was far too busy playing pool to get us any sauces.
The hotel seems to let in anyone off the streets and sitting at the table in our room up on the 4th floor trying to skype one of my friends I was met with two tribes people standing at my open window on the balcony! This just tells me the hotel staff have no regard for safety of guests as anyone is allowed to come and go and wander the levels of the hotel at anytime.
Our room was not cleaned at all during our 3 night stay and attempting to communicate that we wanted clean towels etc was lost on all of the staff when the one English speaking girl was out of sight.
The mattress was awful with springs poking though the sides, it was by far the worst nights sleep so far in our travels.
The walls is both our room and the downstairs area are covered in mold.
We met the owner on our last day as we were waiting to leave, he was English or possibly Australian.. it was hard to tell as he was off his face on drugs as he was slurring his words, stumbling around and failing to focus on what we were saying when he wandered over to our table to 'offer us advice'. This advice did not materialise and after creepily stroking my back he wandered off upstairs.
I would not recommend this place to anyone, the place is a dive.
