The room itself was great, comfy bed, a lot of storage, TV, a/c (the pillows were awesome). Kitchen area with everything you would need in it. Shared bathroom with shower, always stocked with toilet roll and cleaned. The building itself blends into it surroundings and is very old looking, it's not a 5* place but you are literally getting what you paid for. If you don't have think skin the area may seem very intimidating, but again there was no point either of is felt threatened or in any sort of danger. Its only a ten minute walk to the center and has shops close by. I did find a cockroach in the freezer but genuinely laughed it off because that's what you do when you're travelling. Paulo was also very nice.
