Bathrooms and toilets are dirty and taps are broken etc. Kitchen facilities aren't good and we didn't find a place to do...

I have been travelling for the last two years and stayed in well over 100 different hostels hotels and backpackers,in the numerous developing countries I have stayed in I find it hard to find one that came close to this; the place needs some paint a good scrub and pride in itself. But why should they? The reason: We had...

Check-in was difficult, we couldn't understand or be understood. Then we couldn't open the door that gives access to the rooms area. The room was bad: hot, dated, uncomfortable, I couldn't tell...

This place just isn't hygienic. We tried to stay there for few nights, however the smell of mould in the room was overwhelming so decided to shorten our stay. There was this dodgy smell in the kitchen as well and staff didn't seem to bother much about their guests. Located quite far from the city too. Wi-fi never worked in...

Lets start with we paid more for a pizza than we did to sleep here so we couldnt have high expectations. Upon arrival we had to ask for clean sheets as ours had CLEARLY not been washed. Window was broken, curtains smashed in, obscenities written on the wall in food or bodily fluids?! Air conditioning was a fan that could...
