Showed up without a booking and unlike a lot of the reviews on here managed to get a private room at what seemed like a very good price.
The room I had opened on to the terrace, up on the top floor, and was stinking hot with still air without even a fan. Unless you're happy to sleep with the door open with all your stuff there for the taking while you sleep, the room is pretty much unbearably warm.
There's a bar downstairs that plays loud music until 2-3am each night, even though it seemed to be completely empty most nights, so bring ear plugs.
The staff seemed to sleaze onto every female traveller that came through; one of them had this gimmick where he's learnt to say the alphabet but the order is wrong in the middle and he keeps "trying" to get it right. Please don't fall for that crap ladies; you're better than that.
The bathroom never had toilet paper the whole time I was there. There was also no way to get to the shared bathroom without also leaving your room wide open. I dunno, maybe I'm security paranoid.
Cant comment on breakfast as I didn't realise it was included and the staff were all still sleeping on the terrace past 9am each day.
