    I had a private room with an ensuite (nice surprise) but it didn't have AC as advertised. The room had no windows. Linens seemed clean although they were stained. The bathroom looked a little sketch and I had to be careful not to leave anything out because there were ants. The 3 nights I was there no cleaning was done (no biggie) but the bathroom trash was never emptied. No safety box and it seemed anyone could get upstairs. Staff were nice but not helpful. Difficult to meet other travelers.
