The only thing we liked about the hotel was it's location
5
We were greeted very poorly by their front desk staff (blonde dreads). He started off by immediately insulting our last minute booking and saying it was our fault he did not have a room available to us. I then informed him not to offer online bookings if he was not able to keep up with the bookings. That ended the conversation. We were placed in a room that was filthy and were not given pillows. After requesting pillows, we still never received them. The fridges smelled terrible and barely kept things cool. The AC in the rooms do not get turned on until 5 pm, so don't expect to cool down from the hot summer sun in the afternoon. We were very dissatisfied with our stay and certainly will not stay here again. You certainly get what you pay for here. We went into another backpackers two doors down and wished we had stayed there just from the friendliness of the staff.
