There was an issue with the site and what the hotel had written down. We had booked a triple room according to hostelworld.com for $50 USD but the hotel had us in a double and told us it would be $75 for 3 people. I don't know if this was fault on hostel world or the hotel.
Bed is narrow and short. No wifi. Toilet was not cleaned. Room was dirty and damp and extremely small. Door and windows seemed like they could easily be pushed open. Massively overpriced. Should be 20-25 usd for a double.
The best thing is LOCATION, it is in a good part of the city. The rooms are simple but confortable. There is humidity on the walls of the room and some of the bathrooms may be quite small. There is air conditioning in the room. Breakfast is included and it is quite nice. The lodge, as well as some other places on the island, dont accept old dollar bills. They must be 2001 or up.Change them in the island to get better rate. Dont accept taxi from hotel, you will pay extra 5 dollars. We enjoy it.
