They let me stay for awhile then wouldn't extend my stay saying they were full. But a guy in the room I was in told me that half the beds were empty. Then I booked a seperate reservation a week later that they wouldn't honor. They told me they only wanted foreigners there from now on and as an American I wasn't welcomed there. Although a nice man that worked there let me stay in the hotel section for three times the price of a hostel dorm. Very unhappy experience.
This place is not well kept. The bed I slept on had a hump due to the AC leaking right onto the hump. I felt like I couldn't touch anything. The cleaning lady used a rag and attached it to the end of a broom's stick to mop. The breakfast was just toast. A big tub of butter was left open and full of bread crumbs. It was too ghetto for me so I was more than anxious to leave.
