    Cleaning is excellent, the room needs some minor upgrades/repairs, the bathroom needs to be cleaned DAILY. The Internet signal is fairly weak but I would definitely come back and stay here. Very nice staff

    Hostel style Guesthouse

    The property was older with simple rooms and shared bathrooms. At times there was a wait for the bathrooms. The breakfast was reasonable. There was no reception overnight and my room was in a separate building nearby. It was more like a hostel than guesthouse. The location was an easy walk from the bus station and the middle of town.
