What an appalling experience! The place looked OK on our arrival - pleasant reception area; swimming pool and dining area.
This opinion quickly changed when were shown to our 'upgraded' room. A very large bed dominated the room. There was little floor space and very little ( and very basic ) storage space for clothing or other belongings. The shower room / toilet was tiny ( about 1.1/4 sq M ).
The bed was impossibly hard, so an alternative room was requested.
The alternative room had twin beds which were more comfortable, but the room was otherwise identical to the first which we were offered.
With many misgivings we settled in and decided to see what the dining room had to offer for an evening meal. Signs suggested that the 'hotel' served evening meals - it didn't!
The beds proved to be comfortable so we got some sleep the first night.
Using the shower proved to be a bad mistake as everything else in the room became soaked including the toilet roll. We were very uneasy about even using this facility, as the room was far from clean and the body hair from previous clients was still evident around the water drain.
We then discovered this drain was blocked so if you subsequently needed to use the toilet rubber boots would have been useful.
Breakfast was a disaster. Served by teenaged boys who knew nothing about cooking or serving food. The only coffee available was powdered instant and served with powdered milk.
After a 20 minute wait I was finally served with an omelette which proved to be uneatable, so at this point we packed and checked out.
If this place presented itself as a basic hostel for unfussy backpackers it would be somewhere near the truth. It is entirely unsuitable for any other travellers requiring comfort, hygene and good food.Avoide!
