I'm a low maintenance world traveller who has never once complained about a hostel/hotel online. Until now.
My stay here was simply awful! The owners were unfriendly, the screaming wind kept shattering up against my room's cheaply constructed window frame so loud that I could barely sleep. It may have been just one night with bad winds, but when I changed dwellings by going to the vastly superior Historias Lodge, the problem went away.
The place is also located next to a bunch of family homes and three neighbouring dogs bark for a good minute at each car or person that came into the hotel entrance. This barking symphony started at 5 a.m.! When I walked into the parking lot after dinner at 8 p.m., these same dogs that were so friendly and loud during the day started growling ferociously at me to the point where I really thought one would attack. An awful experience for a dog lover like myself! What's more, the owners started using an electric saw right beneath my window at 8 a.m. I was so bad, that I began to laugh!
Oh yeah, the room is small and uncozy, but it does have hot water.
Do yourself a favor and spend a bit more and go to the nearby Historias Lodge!
