What were we thinking? We booked the $88/night executive suite. HAHAHAA. What a joke, it has a tv, with no reception, a fan that struggles to spin, a fridge that barely works. Walls that remind me of the deborchery that has occured in the past. Just a horrible room. The shared bathrooms are filthy with no exhaust extraction. The hallways littered with work boats that woft an oddor that is very unpleasant. management seem to spent more time devising ways of fining and charging guests rather than keeping the place clean and in order.
We decided within an hour that we would not stay another night. Its a buget hostel for workers and crack heads. If this is you, welcome to paradise. If wish I had read TA reviews first. Be warned!
