Liked the them, the room was small and basic but clean. Sucks that the front door is locked after ten though, and no one told us about the side door until our last night!


This backpacker was the worst we have ever been before. We have paid less for much better places.The old man who 'attended us' was really unkind. The last day, he asked us to paid to save our stuff, and he denied us a shelter for the rain to wait for our bus. Really bad facilities, with shared shower between women and men. The room was quite small for two people and unfurnished, with hot pipes visibles beside our little bed, and the plug too close to our pillows, which is very dangerous.
