I didn't stay here but as they offer laundry services I wanted to write - whatever you do don't get any laundry done here. We dropped off coloureds and whites (as we've been doing with no problems for the last 10 months in various countries all around Asia and elsewhere) and they put the whole lot in the wash together, resulting in all the whites turning grey, the yellows turning green and the other colours, bar black, totally messing up too. Firstly the owner (rotund, bald chap) denied they'd done it but then backtracked as the evidence wasn't anything you could argue with, so then he said it's our fault as we should have told him he couldn't wash the colours in with the whites - I pointed out that he, running a laundry, should know that, nobody else in the past 10 months had ever done that or needed telling not to do that, and it's obvious you don't do it regardless, but he said no it's my fault and we should go as we weren't getting anything from him and he was blameless. Totally arrogant and horrible man. Was fairly intimidating to some 18'ish girls there, shouting for them to pay him money for the next nights accommodation, so solo travellers might want to consider this from a safety aspect too.
