Bed bugs, worn out mattresses and unreal rates Mar 23, 2011
Stayed here for Carnival. Had ordered a private 4-bed room with bath but got put up in a 6-bed room, shared bath.
The mattresses are so worn out in the middle that you are basically sleeping on the bedboards. Several people had marks all over their legs from bed bugs biting them.
After complaining we were moved downstairs to a stuffy room with a private bath but no toilet seat.
We were treated like imbeciles and refused to be able to talk to the manager/owner until 3 days into our stay in which he refused to refund us anything for the lack of breach of what we had originally ordered.
The level of cleanliness is disgusting. There were semen stains on the wall next to my bed, holes in the sheets and cockroaches running rampant (in the bed too).
I honestly don't know how this place can even be listed as a reputable place to stay.
Apparently in Lonely Planet it's one of the first listings for a place to stay. The description is a load of bull.
It might almost be worth sleeping on the street than staying here! Don't waste your time or money!
