To start with I must say that staff here are very friendly and as much as they can be very accommodating.
My experience here wasn't good and I will never come back again or reccommend to anyone. As soon as I got to the guesthouse I as asked to pay up front and in cash, boss's orders, apparently, which i thought very unusual, therefore I had to go out and find a working cash point near by, ASAP which ended up being a bit of a palarva. Then I was given room 8 to stay which was absolutelely disgustingly filthy. To start with the room was incredibly dark, there's one, and only one, very dark ceiling lamp, the little lamp by the sink does not work and there aren't any bedside lamps which probably is part of the ploy for customers not noticing the surrounding dirtiness. All the surfaces and mirrors in the room were visibly dusty and sticky, both mattresses were old and haggered and not really suitable for a person to lie in, nevermind sleep. Then by absolute sheer coincidence when moving one of the beds closer to a plug I noticed a used condom on the floor between both beds and bits of letters/mail behind the other bed.
I was then moved to room 7 which was slightly better but still at a very poor standard even for the competitive rate per night. Here just like in the previous room there was a very unempleasant stink of tabaco but at least the ashtray was clean (unlike in room 8!!), again the light by the sink didnt work and the room was fairly dark but there was an extra bedside lamp,a very old dirty and slight broken one, the blinders were broken which made me feel vulnerable and in display therefore I had to improvise and put some towels over the window as I didn't dare to ask for another room in case of more surprises.
There are a few positives which are as following: good central heating, working hot tap water and strong wi-fi signal.
Due to work commitments in an area im not that familiarised I stayed over two nights and survived so it is possible to stay here but bear in mind that this is not just a low budget place, but also and much more so, a low standard and very dirty guesthouse.
