This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It is a very small courtyard guesthouse, without any restaurant or bar in the guesthouse or facilities for traveler and the staff didn't speak English,so its very difficult to communicate.
I booked a single private room ensuite and the room was very very small (the space between the bed and the walkway was only one feet wide), no space for my luggage, and the bath room without the door (only cover with a cloth hanging half way). The table was dusty.
As I have paid the deposit for 4 nights, I immediately asked if I could get my money back and move from this guesthouse within 5 minutes after checking-in.

Immediately the staff said they will give me another room tomorrow as they were fully booked that night. I have a double bed room the next day which is more spacious than the single bed, but the furniture and the bathroom facilities was much older than the single room and the table, floor and bathroom was dirty.

Overall... I will not stay there again.
