Older hostel-like guest house. Good social, great staff. Felt very safe. One of two beds not so comfortable, no screens on windows but no mosquito bites, so idk if needed. Great deal for the price and would stay again.

I met the owner two nights before my check out. An old , aggressive, racist and misogynist man. I canceled my last night because I felt unsafe around him. If you’re a woman traveling by yourself, please avoid a bad moment and stay away from this slum.

6/10 Okay
