With such a low price, I was a little weary however, I booked this place because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. We weren't in the room for 3 minutes when we had to kill a cockroach on the wall, about 10 ants on both our beds and there were some friendly spiders in the bathroom.
While the place was 'clean' and yes, the owner is super friendly, you'll be more than likely sleeping with some extra little friends in this place. Also - everything is basic. There are no amenities (like towels or soap).
We didn't stay. We ended up leaving and going to The Albemarle, which was much pricer but like hotel heaven compared to here.
