The biggest issue with this place is the dictatorship owners. I personally never got fined but to fine a cash strapped backpacker $1 for every minute late after check out and $50 for not washing dishes seems overly harsh. They have CCTV and they scan through it with $ signs in their eyes. We also over heard them seeking to fine the dirtiest room they could find. The tonne of French people who flock to this place were pretty rude most of the time to us. Just got really bad vibes from this place. Showers seemed constantly filthy too. Not recommended.
