Much better places to stay... More

Once we entered our double room and put down our backpacks, we actually had to sit on the bed because there was no more room left. We actually had to climb over our backpacks to get to the bathroom. I... More

The bathroom/toilet was practically one step away from the bed. That's how tiny it is. The bathroom/toilet was terrible! It was dirty with brown grime... More
