This place is just on the western side of the main intersection in town and firmly sits in the budget category.

For your money you get old rooms with old beds and old fixtures. Some furnishings are broken too, but at least you get a hot water bathroom with Western toilet. There’s some good tourist information in the lobby, the owner can’t speak a lick of English and you may well be the only guest in residence. But that shouldn’t put you off if you have little money to spend as it’s a great budget choice primarily because it’s of better quality than some other slightly more expensive places in town. But make no mistake, this is a basic place.
