The rooms are tiny, but if you just need a clean place to sleep for the night, it's fine.

The building was quite old and dilapidated. Our room was dirty and had a few fixtures missing. The shower was broken and the air-conditioning was dusty and old and the overall place was quite unsanitary looking. I also had a couple yellow stains on the bed.
