A great place overall, perfect location and the staff was extremely friendly. The rooms weren't so great however they were working on upgrading them as they changed the beds during our stay. The daily excursions are reasonably priced considering the average pricing for the area and the rooms are dirt cheap. Definitely worth checking out.

I stayed there for 5 days. Very cheap and reasonable place. The cafe is really good to sit in and read and have a drink but the food is not very good. It is better to go out and get some shwarma or anything for that matter
