Stayed in a private room for 1 night in august, The reviews of this place were good so hoped for a decent place.
In fairness the staff are friendly and the location is great.
However the room itself was a big let down. We arrived in around 8pm after a 10 hour bus trip hoping to relax and settle in.What we found was a dirty bathroom and no covers on the bed. At 8 in the evening there is no excuse not to have a room clean no matter how budget the accommodation is.In fairness i could have complained about the cleanliness but after a long journey i didn't feel like waiting around while they cleaned it.
In summary pretty disappointing given the reviews.
