2/10 Poor

Let me start by saying you GET what you pay for money for a not so great place to stay. Don't let yourself mislead by the pictures, the conditions are terrible and I wonder how they're allowed to keep this establishment running. while I was in the room for less than 4 hours, I couldn't get any sleep because of the old, creaky hardwood floor, you could feel every guest walking on the hallway. No soap in the bathroom, old and broken plastic shades, large spacing in between the door and the frame, heater is positioned right to the head of the bed. I only needed a place to crush for the night but this was way below any of my expectations.

This hotel was more like an affordable, decent hostel. Do not expect a legit hotel experience. But for what it was, on a budget, it’s a great option.
