If you travel with your life's savings in your backpack and an array of superexpensive items, you're safe with Anna and her draconian paranoid grandma tactics.
The first thing you must note about Smokin Balam is that it's a bait and switch "LowCost" guest house where the low price of the room hides the fact that they're out to get every dime and nickel they can from you.
They charged me $10 for WiFi and they never refunded it after i had to leave the next morning.
They scolded me for talking to the kids on the street and they lock the doors at 11PM. It feels as a State of Siege and it really robs you of the simple joy of travel, just my two cents.
