Not worth it with the money that we paid.
Unclean and facilities not in good condition.
very dirty hotel. They did not manage well at all the hotel. The air-con not cool. Not in a good condition. When I arrived the hotel, I was very shocked because of the stairs to the hotel like want to go to Rumah Ayam house. Then the lobby very dirty. When I want to go to my room, I was shocked because my wall of my room being attached with laundry rope and theres a laundry hanging in front my room.
The hotel is located above a store that sells salted fish, dried squid etc.So the store given very unpleasant odour eventhough you keep your windows and door shut. It also has clogged pipe in the bathroom.
Close to many seafood restaurants, very nice to stay for a holiday.
I really like the reason for being close to the various seafood restaurants around the store.
All good and happy to where to where especially the market pilippin
Good location, right in front of the market filipin, ground floor shops selling salted fish, so there is the smell until kat.
Parking is quite difficult, but too close to the market town filipino and just walk away.

A great location and thats it.
Rent a room with one queen bed. The cleanliness is just so so. No soap or whatever. Just as its name says, budget hotel. It means, BUDGET HOTEL. The only goodpoint is, it is situated really really near the Fillipino night market. If youre travelling with families, choose other hotel as it is not very convenient for family vacation. Asked the reception about the laundry and they asked us to go to the dry cleaning shop which is situated very far from the hotel. All in all, just a decent hotel with poor accomodation but great in term of location.

If you want 1 or more stars, do not stay here.
Door locked at midnight, but you dial a six figure code on the intercom to reach the duty clerk. I arrived 2 a.m. and had advised the hotel - took eight dialings to wake the clerk. Stayed 2 nights. room not cleaned. No clean towel for 2nd night. Paint on walls on doors and walls chipped and dirty. The correct term in English is 'SEEDY'. Hany for very late arrivals, book 1 night then look around next day. Many other places to stay.

Stay here if you fancy the smell of rotting fish.
You can't really complain about a hotel/hostel when it's £9 a night. If you do then God help the very soul that resides in your body. Alas, you can't not mention the fact that this place REEKS of rotting fish. Don't believe me? Book a room. Also, needed to ask at reception what the wifi password was, to find the bloke asleep on a wooden box in the waiting area at 15:30pm. Enjoy.
