            Broken Facilities and Poor breakfast ”

            Everything is good. The biggest problem is poor sharing toilets (Not clean and broken). The rooms is medium in condition. And breakfast is poor coz of no plates and glass in good condition and no space for having breakfast!

            1. The room was very stinky and dirty. 2. The bed and pillow sheet are dirty with yellow marks on it. 3. The front desk staff was not friendly enough. I booked another hotel with almost same price but better than this one. Don't get fooled with the pictures they shown here.

            Worst Experience Ever”

            1. Spoiled Air condition, blowing out warn and cold air from time to time 2. Asking for room change, another room air condition is more worst, blowing out hot air, even the staff also say it's hot 3. Most of the staff is very lazy, laying on the lobby sofa, when asking for help for the air condition matter, they doesn't really care until have to call agoda hotline for help 4. While at midnight, suddenly the air condition blow out very very cold air, with no air conditional controller being provided as staff mentioned, we have to off the air condition during midnight sleep, and there's no any fan to blow, as the fan also spoiled 5. Early morning before checkout the air condition suddenly burst out with a lot of water, till have to call the staff again... Overall: Never ever again come here for stay!

            This place is just very old and the upkeep is, and has not been good at all. I was told not to use my bathroom/tolet because all of it was broken, so they showed me a communal toilet/shower down a few halls! It's very low cost and I suppose this is the primary reason; because of it's condition.

            Legendary”

            I've stayed already a few times in this guesthouse and it was always a more than pleasant stay. The owner is very friendly and helpful, and also the other staff is always there to help you. Rooms are already a bit basic and run-down, but compared with other accomodations in the same area still a very good deal. Furthermore the location, just opposite TG's legendary restaurant, is more than ideal. One of the best areas I've ever stayed in South East Asia. I will definitely return to this place in the future, of that I'm quite sure already.
