May 3, 2020

We left 2 days earlier but pre paid everything but I wouldn’t recommend anyone to stay here. It’s worse then a hostel but marketed like it’s a hotel. When you have to go outside your room to a public toilet and sink it’s not a hotel.

5/5 - Excellent

Lots of great shrines and temples. Beware this is a weekend or day trip destination for the locals , it gets packed.
