Wouldn't stay again
This is an old establishment. The furniture is old, but that was okay. The noise level was HORRIBLE! There is a bar next door and a band began playing around 8:15 PM every night and continued through the night. I thought I was in the club. The people staying there and the workers were loud and woke me up every morning at around 5 AM. The bathroom is so small. It was hard to get around the toilet toilet and sink to get to the shower. The bathroom was all an open area, therefore, the toilet and sink would get sprayed while showering. You had to sit sideways on the toilet otherwise your knees and face would be up against the sink. Soap is the only amenity given. The positives: The employees were all nice. The location is good. The bed was fairly comfortable.

Good value for budget traveller. Great location.
Good value for the money. Excellent location, clean,ac. No hot shower, nowhere to put your things, whole bathroom including toilet gets wet when you take a shower. Good for a short stay just for sleeping but long term stay hard to get comfortable. Perfect for budget travelers that want to be centrally located.

Don't Care About Amenities, Being Very Old or Loud
The hotel is just old, cheap but very no windows but I saw lizards crawling on the wall in the common area in the room with the computers, there was no where to hang clothes, it was could hear all others including late night party people, guest next door and anybody that enter and was talking on common area...drunk patrons came in late night and talking loud in common area. I stayed in room 21 and the ceiling in the restroom right above the shower was open to the outside...Yes, there was a screen there but that's it...a very lose screen. I could see the sunlight coming through. What was scary was that bugs or any good size bird or rodent could land on top of the screen and easily fall into the restroom. Any bug could just drop in if they found there way into that opened space that shielded the screen but had an opening...light going into a bird's house. I was not able to sleep that night thinking the lizards may be in my room or something may come in through the restroom. The hotel was clean but very old....I could or would not ever stay there again. If you want cheap, this is cheap but you are definitely getting what you pay opinion. The staff was excellent and very nice; very helpful.
