After staying here for 4 nights, I have mixed feelings about this place. The location was great, and it was a good value considering we had a private room (double and twin bed) and ensuite bathroom for a little over $40USD/night.
BIG downside - the owner(?), Gustavo, smokes in the lobby. Our room was directly off the lobby, so needless to say we smelled the smoke all day/night long and after awhile our belongings began to smell as well. Otherwise, Gustavo is very friendly and helpful.
I guess beware booking the ensuite room, as I believe it's the only room on the 1st floor. We had a window right over the sidewalk, which was a little annoying because we could hear people outside talking and traffic constantly - not a huge deal, but something to mention in case you mind noise.
We didn't wander upstairs to the kitchen so I can't comment on that, and I don't know if anyone smokes up there as well.
Overall, I'd stay elsewhere next time. The room and bathroom were clean, but I can't stand stale smoke indoors.
