Except the extremely central location, and a colorful set up, this place doesn't have much to offer in real terms.
We stayed in a 4 bed room, where we got no sleep, because of the noise of the traffic going by.
Bare minimum requirements of a peaceful sleep and a hot shower were not met.
Choose this place only for the advantage of its location, if that is your prime concern.
