Arrived here at 3 AM after a 21 hour bus ride from Arusha. Thankfully we knew they had staff 24 hours and the check in only took about 45 minutes. We got a double room with no bath and our friend got a single room; but it was almost a double as the employee opened a room to a sleeping guest - well a once sleeping guest.
So we got our room and it was sparse and dirty. After about 3.5 hours of "sleep" we were ready to shower since we felt dirtier from "sleeping" in the bed. No water in the shared bath and the sink set up is virtually impossible to use for simply washing your hands. So we decided to leave and tried to get some breakfast on the way out. After being told they were "out of" or "it will take a long time to make...." we aborted any attempts at eating.
Next we tried to use the advertised free wifi, which was not free. So we finally left.
We've stayed at many cheaper places in Africa with much nicer accommodations, there is no value here for your money b/c at $25 USD for a double you are getting a $8 room. Add the fact that just about every staff member was unhelpful or did not acknowledge your existence (except the lady that checked us out) this place gets the title of the worst place I have stayed at this far in over 10 years and 20 countries.
