This is the worst place I have ever been in my life. Like most backpackers, we were attracted by the cheap price, but seriously, you can't put a price on your own safety! I would much rather have spent an extra $10-20 a night, and had a door that locked, no dead cockroahes or toenail clippings on the carpet, a kitchen that had been cleaned and bathroom fixtures which did not hang off the wall.
The manager was never present, and when he was, he seemed to just be shouting at his guests who had various complaints.
There was food stains in all over the kitchen floor and on the bottom/walls of the fridge and microwave. The sinks were rusty and hanging off the Walls, and the whole place just smelled and looked unclean.
One of the worst parts is that the window next to my bed had no glass, just a piece of cardboard taped where the Payne should be. Sure enough, when it started raining, my bed got drenched! There was also a thick layer of dust over everything.
When we came to check out, we each asked for our key deposit back. When the manager told us that we had not paid a deposit, we disputed it and asked him to look at his records.
He then accused us of calling him a theif! We told him not to worry about the $60 total key deposit, but he just yelled at us! We walked away to leave, but he followed us, just screaming and swearing at us for calling him a liar!
Seriously, if you choose to stay here, you may be even more barmy than the hotel manager.
