You get what you pay for! I was in a room with 3 other girls. Beds were alright but when I went to the bathroom, I saw a massive cockroach run out. It’s not super clean but manageable. I was only there for one night and booked it because of how close it was to the airport. When I was checking out in the morning, no one was at the desk and I had to wait around 5-10 mins for someone to show up. Overall, I’d give this place a 2.5 star!
