Cute space, but there was no cooling off the room, and the little pool closed early and wasn't open at all the next morning. Very limited breakfast options, and nothing really if you're vegan.

Easy booking, no frills. You pay for what you get, but there are no problems (cockroaches, etc).

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
This should be listed as a hostel. It is not a hotel. Its a closet with no AC (even tho the hotel is listed as having AC) and a very small bathroom. When we asked for our money back them showed us two rooms that did have AC even after they told us the only room with AC was booked. It had bricks with holes in it (without screens) and an AC but was just as bad as the first room. For the price of $80US it was way over priced. Should only be charging $30night.
