Negative Reviews

No A/C.

If you don't mind a bit of noise (or you brought your own fan along), then you won't mind leaving the window open on warm nights as there is no air-conditioning here. Heat-sensitive guests might consider booking elsewhere.

Refund Policy.

Double check that refund policy before you book; even the promptest cancellations (within an hour of booking) have not be refunded.

Small, Smoky Rooms.

Some guests have felt their rooms were too small for proper accommodation and were bothered by the smell of smoke throughout the premises despite the non-smoking policy.
