Dont ever,ever , ever, ever.....NEVER go there! Don't be fooled by the cheap price, it is not worth the stress and your personal security. I don't know where to start to with this hotel. My four friends and myself book this hotel for 3 days and we only lasted one night! It was horrible. First, to find the hostel was the hardest thing to do especially since there were no signs and in a very shady, dangerous looking neighborhood. While looking for the place some guy on the street there asked us to [--] him! We were 5 female students, so this was so scary. Then the very rude and unfriendly guy at the receptionist wasn't much help either. Finally found the place, entered the room, it looked Ok at first glance. It wasn't the best but we were just too tired and hungry to care. Bathroom was very dirty though. Anyways, we decided to bear with it and just go grab something to eat after a long day searching for the hotel. When we tried to leave we were told that we couldn't take our key with us. We have never encountered this before and asked why we couldn't keep it and apparently its Hotel policy since he said that reception is opened 24/7 as well as internet access..........LIES! Across the street we had dinner because we were too scared to go anywhere else in the area and reached back a couple minutes before midnight. There was no internet access in our room so we had to go to the lobby area to get wifi to plan for our next day trip. All along we are bearing with everything....it was only 3 nights and we would be out most of the time anyway! (we were sadly mistaken) At approx 11:45pm, he rudely interrupted us and said the reception area would be closed and internet would be cut off next 10 mins. Then after a few minutes he switched off the lights, packed his stuff and was about to leave.So not only was the lobby closed but also internet came off too! At this point we were beginning to think we were in a prison or boarding school!
Went back to our room, pretty much unsatisfied but decided to stick it out and wake up early and get to the lobby to plan for the day instead. There was no TV in our room and the view outside our widow was garbage, toilet paper rolls and used condoms thrown everywhere!Our last resort was to take a shower (in the dirty bathroom) and sleep. Even that we couldn't do in one peace! The walls were very thin, we could have hear the guy snoring next door and every conversation in the lobby! So then we turned off the lights to sleep.................. then glow in the dark paintings then appeared everywhere! On the walls, on the cupboards, ceiling.......... stars and heart and batman and palm trees...........As if it was not scary enough when the lights were on!......we were beginning to think this place is some kinda undercover Brothel! That was the last straw...We couldn't sleep that night....we packed our bags and were waiting for daybreak to get the hell outta there!!!!! It was non-refundable but our safety and peace of mind is well worth it! We rather sleep on the streets than stayed there!!! So take my advice.......DONT GO THERE! I personally think the business should be investigated by gov't officials and be SHUTDOWN!!!!!!
