“Don't bother”
Reviewed 5 June 2013 via mobile

This place looked like a steal at $6/night...well we certainly got what we paid for. While our room was clean and rather spacious, the one common bathroom was neglected and I had to ask twice for toilet paper. We had 2 fans so thought it would be fine without a/c, but there were no windows to help with ventilation and once we were all in bed, the room became hot and stuffy and was impossible to have any sleep. We finally opened the door to allow a cross breeze, which helped, but that gave permission for the Mosquitos to come in and eat us alive. I would save the $6 and go elsewhere.

This is the best hotel value in town. At $10 a night per person with a private bath (A/C an unnecessary extra charge), and two blocks from the beach on a quiet, relatively lightly-travelled street a block and a half from the Mercado Central, the location is ideal. Two sisters run this six room niche, and do so very well indeed. They understand English pretty much, but don't much speak it (Hint: they like help with their ESL homework). Guests have use of an immaculate, well-equipped kitchen and a spacious refrigerator/freezer. Sadly, the sisters say they own the hotel business but not the building. When the $800-a-month lease is up in November, 2013, they may not renew.

Room Tip: Picky sleepers will do this anyway, but it might be good to try out the mattress first -- Room 5 is...

Reviewed 25 July 2012

The staff was very kind. They answered all of our questions! Near fun bars. Simple room with aircon & shower. It's unassuming when you see it- but it's a great place to stay. It was the cheapest place with a/c! And it WORKED!
