Negative Reviews

Mosquitoes All Around

Complaints about mosquitoes were echoed by guests, stating that the whole property teemed with these pesky insects. The rooms, common areas, and even the bathrooms were reported to have lots of mosquitoes. Thus, the use of repellents is highly advised.

Rooms Can Be Too Hot

Guests expressed their displeasure with regards to the cooling system of the property. Most of the rooms do not have air-conditioning, making these rooms hot and humid. Although fans are provided, guests noted they were not enough to make the temperature comfortable.

Shared Bathrooms Downstairs

The shared shower areas and bathrooms are set downstairs and there are no toilets on the second floor. Guests find this issue troublesome especially during the night, as they have to go down just to use the toilet.
