What an experience - a tiny hotel room with no window! Even prison is nicer - probably also cleaner... We booked it bc it was rather centrally located and it was one of the cheaper hotels. Would hardly recommend it again - you might as well spend a little more and acutally get sth for your money. Staff was ok, hotel provided internet (which they claim costs USD 10 per day but is in hotel price included)... not much more to add. If you book here - then 99% u get a room with no window.

Disgusting is the only word to describe this place . Backpacking so I don't expect much but this place I'd filthy and horrible.

Dozens of hairs all over the room and bedding . Bugs all over the walls, no windows and really don't waste your time. Walls are so thin I didn't sleep a wink !!! £50 a night to. Rip off

HORRIBLE

Room was clean and modern but very small. Would be fine for one person with a small suitcase but for a couple each with a backpack was very tight. Also, as someone else reviewed the bed sheets are to small and pull away over the night leaving you to sleep on a rubber mattress which is most uncomfortable. However, good location and ok staff.

Ok I'll level with you... I've stayed in a lot of different hotels and hostels.... I don't mind mould in the shower... I don't mind old sheets.... I don't even mind places that smell like dust (*cough* Ireland).... but there is one basic function that needs to be accomplished... I need to be able to SLEEP.

There are 2 reasons why I couldn't sleep in this hotel:
1) There is no insulation - I could hear every person who walked down the hall, their mobile phones, everyone who put a key (yes an old metal key) into the lock and every conversation they had.
2) The mattresses are like foam mattresses they use in gymnasiums; hard foam covered in thick plastic.... seriously! And as you toss and turn you pull the sheet out and end up laying on the PLASTIC cover.... it is just like sitting on a leather couch in summer... and that peeling sound that you get when you try to get off the couch!!!

Other than those 2 MAJOR issues, the place is clean, the people are friendly, the location is great ($20 from the airport) and surrounded by restaurants.

However, next time I will pay the extra $50 and stay somewhere nicer...
