Don't expect much for the price, but they do include free breakfast! Rooms are blah, no AC, but the fans worked well and as a result, I never suffered. Prepare for a steep climb up the winding stairs, which will give you a tremendous workout, especially if you're not in shape. Breakfast was ok, I chose the toast, eggs, and...

I booked a bunk in a female dorm, but it was a mixed dorm. It wasn't clean and the bath room only worked sometimes. The manager smoked right by the no smoking sign. Breakfast was poor. The staff were friendly

We booked two nights in a private room but didn't even stay one. The room was cheap but the mattress had a severe bed bug infestation. There were bugs walking across the pillow and several eggs on the matress seams. When I told staff they offered to spray it with air freshener ?? Eventually they gave us a full refund...

Everything very dirty or broken. My room hasn't been cleaned when I checked in (even though I arrived in the afternoon). Unpleasant manager. Pretty noisy. Actually expensive for what you get... Really not recommended!

I was doing a visa run and tried this house out. My cost was $6 and they gave me that. Great bed, one blanket, one towel, a decent breakfast, and a shower. The shower was a little broken but it worked and that's all that matters. Over all the place is nice. The workers are nice, and are very funny...

We arrived early and at 12 were given the key to check in but the room hadn't been made up so we had to wait a bit longer. The bathroom was really bad - the sink nearly collapsed on me so if you stay check the bathroom so you are safe! The free water is a nice touch.

This guesthouse is ok. It was clean, staff is friendly, but rooms are basic and not fancy. We had a double room with own bathroom. Breakfast was ok, too. It's not much, but gets you started for the day. Still think the price is a bit high, though.

This place is shabby at best - pictures included for your pleasure - staff are disinterested, rooms are dirty and everything is broken from the tiles, the door, the sink, the curtains, the aircon, the shower etc etc. The whole guesthouse is covered in rules and warnings and threats of fines if you mark the bed sheets or do washing...
