Latest Review

" Left 2 days early because of massive amounts of mosquitos in the room; mosquito nets completely broken, no window shields; lack of cleanlyness as well; beds very short, of you are over 1,80 m you won't fit into it....had to 'sleep' next to the watchman, who watched movies all night; so no sleep at all. For 60 US Dollars per Night - inaceptable! (Although staff was nice) We found a much better Place after all though. "
