Good: Location. Clean.
Bad: Everything else. Owner blames my miserable stay on ME. What a laugh...
1 - After 2 nights there, I had 21 mosquito bites on my arms. THEN we were told there was "something in the room for mosquitos". Some plug-in thing I've never seen.
2 - Breakfast. Same cheap things to eat every day. Dry toast, some jams, coffee. Tiny breakfast room, and under the watchful, leering eye of the owner the entire time. Very uncomfortable. And One hour only 8:30-9:30. somehow this is all my fault.
3 - Weak a/c could not keep up with late-May heat. Good luck to you in August.
4 - Bad internet signal, and shameful computer in lobby. Mouse doesn't work, cord not long enough. Slow connection. I wanted to find a different place to stay - computers so slow that I couldn't do it. Again...my fault on all of this.
5 - TINY shower. I've stayed in Europe at 50+ accommodations in my life. NEVER seen a shower this tiny. Again...my fault.
6 - A 4-person room with NOT ONE hook on the wall/door to hang something. Cheap. Even the desk wasn't a dessk - it was a cheap metal table that you couldn't use - because it was not a desk but strips of metal with space between. Cant put change on it (falls thru) and couldn't write on it. An example of the cheapness of this place.
7 - Unfriendly. Blaming ME for the things wrong is an example of the owners brutal lack of customer service.
8 - Overpriced. I would not reccommend this place for half what the rates are.
