The worst room of our two week trip Apr 10, 2011
We booked two nights at this place on Hostelbookers.com. When we arrived and the owner went to show us how to use the shower, the toilet seat fell off. Then, as I took a shower later there was no hot water. Part way into my shower, with my hair full of soap, the water stopped all together. The temp. in our room was 93F at 10pm when we attempted to go to sleep. The "single" bed she advertised was a rickety old bunk bed that started to tip when you climbed the ladder, and I am the smaller person of the 2 travelers. The temperature in the bunk bed was not tolerable for sleep. The internet did not work in the room or common room. It only worked outside in one area. The room we had was overall not very clean and I wore shoes in the shower because it was so unclean. Pretty much everything here was very sub-par and not ok for what we paid for the private room. It was so terrible and unbearable we could not stay another night. The owner refused to give us our $$ back and rather than subject ourselves to it again, we ate all that $$ and left. She was friendly when we arrived but after we asked about this, her attitude changed. There were plenty of other places in town with A/C that were better located and were cheaper than this dump. I would not advise staying here if you wish to sleep or be comfortable in the slightest. I have attached a few pictures of our nasty bathroom.
