I booked my stay at Lebos based on the good reviews I had read. Unfortunately I had exactly the opposite experience. The airport pickup I had booked (and confirmed just the day before) came 2 hours late, and that was only after the airport information desk called them twice. Then it turns out they had double booked my room, so on my second night the woman on the front desk called me away from dinner and told me I had to move to a dorm room fir one night because " someone else wanted my room". This was despite the fact that I'd booked it many weeks before. I was told I didn't even have time to finish my dinner, because they were arriving any minute and I had to move my stuff immediately. I thought about it, then said I wasn't happy to do that. The woman came out to the dining area later and told me in a really sarcastic voice that "she had sorted it out, and that I shouldn't worry because I was the star". The person I was talking to and I were astounded. To top it off,the place became party central that night until 3am. Despite asking for a quiet room when I booked, I was given the noisiest one. I found out the next day that one of the staff got really drunk and thumped on the door of the double booked couple in the dorm at 3am. They let her in, only for her to fall asleep on one of the beds and snore so loudly that the guest had to go out to the common area to try to sleep. I checked out the next morning, although I had 3 more nights planned. Oh, and get yourself a local sim, because the wifi doesn't work. I'm not sure what has changed, but there were a lot of unhappy and very tired people there when I was there. I hope you have a better experience.
