    Unfriendly staff! We didn't get breakfast, even after showing the staff that it was included. We had to check out at 10 am even it said that check out is at 11 am.

    Friendly staff. The room and the shared bathroom were clean. Central location, next to the market and the old slave market memorial. Everything is at a walkable distance.

    No bedsheets, no towels, no wardrobe, no bedside cabinet, no breakfast. Broken windows so that I couldn't close them. Not safe to go around when it's dark. It wasn't worth the price.

    This hotel is terrible. When we checked in, the rate was twice as high as our reservation. The picture is at odds with the room. We booked a beautiful room with a private bathroom and ended up with $60 for our dorm in the public bathroom. The bed was the upper and lower bunk. Living here is like a nightmare.
