I stayed here based on Lonely Planet's raving reviews, but had I looked around more, I would've seen that there were better places at this price point $59 is a lot for a tiny, dingy, dark room with a lumpy bed, no fan, and a loud air conditioning. I suspect there must've been nicer rooms that LP raved about, but mine was pretty terrible.
On the plus side, the service was excellent, Sue was very helpful at giving me travel advice about the island. The room was clean and well maintained. Also, it's about a minute's walk from the very noisy main street, and I appreciated the buffer.
