2/10 Poor

The bathroom smelt like something had died inside. We found maggots on the floor. MAGGOTS. The sheets were dirty and so was the towel.

6/10 Good

My room was mosquito infested and the toilet smelled terrible. After an administrative mix-up I was called out of bed at 23.45pm to show my passport as they had no record of me checking in despite me explaining that I had a separate reservation for my second night.
