As the title suggests this hotel albeit 2 star rating was shabby hostel like to say the least! The room we were given was cell like and the bathroom reminiscent of a run down hospital sluce! On the upside though staff were very friendly and helpful and the location was good ! I would not visit again.

My wife and I stayed here last month (September 2016), booked at last minute and got cheap flights and even cheaper stay here. We read the reviews before we arrived and to be perfectly honest we were terrified of what we were going to find. 1) Yes, I agree with previous reviews, the hotel is very dated, but, it was... More

We knew it had no A/C but there were no fans to hire and the rooms are unbearable with the heat,i would advise to get a room with a balcony. Bathroom was basic and smelt damp.

The hotel was not clean, especially the bathroom. There was a lot of mold on the floor, ceiling and walls. It was very old. The window/door in the bedroom to a small balcony could'nt open. It was actually not really far from the city and the beach, but because it was up the hill it seems far and the trip... More

As a budget hotel it ticks the fundamental boxes, providing simplistic lodging and service for a decent price. I'd have been disappointed to have paid any more as rooms are without air-conditioning, the safe didn't work and the decor had certainly seen better days. The staff on reception were helpful enough and the maids did visit the room daily but... More
