Staff were unfriendly and distant, gave no tour or advice. Room was hot and stuffy, bed very dirty with lots of hair on it when we arrived. Bathroom lock was inconsistent and shower leaks. Our room was ground floor infront of a public balcony and only had sheer curtains. Kitchen had barely any crockery and utensils. Very convenient location close to town, but sketchy neighbourhood. Felt unsafe as female travellers.
