The host, John, was extremely friendly and helpful! His sister owns a cafe across the street where I had an excellent breakfast and the menu is in English as well which is always nice. Everything was nice and clean, my private room was quiet...I guess the only things that would have added are a mirror in the room and a remote for the TV but those are really small things. The location was exactly where I wanted to be and John provided a great map and instructions to get everywhere I wanted to go.

Pros: Nice location and great staff. The owner (John) provided very helpful map with directions. Const: Room is little bit dusty.


The place is very dusty, even the floors of the room are partially covered with cement. Mattress and just laid on the floor without proper bed. Overall atmosphere is old and dingy. But it has basic facilities like hair dryer, shampoos, clean toilets, air conditioner.
