      We were booked for the wrong date on their system (guest house), then the power went of on arrival and we had to wait for an hour with no explanation before they booked us in. Then we were told we paid the wrong amount and had to pay more, but we paid the amount advertised on the website. Two of the staff members were also asleep in the common areas of the guest house when we arrived.
