    Great place to stay but staff let down the vibe!

    Great rooms, beautiful terrace with great view, but the staff weren't exactly the friendliest nor helpful. This may be due to inability to communicate in English - but hey... can't hurt to try and be helpful to travellers.

    ... site before, you should! It is an amazing company that allows people to rent out their homes, spare rooms, igloos, tent gear, etc all over the world. The site connects you with these people and allows you to pay all electronically so there is no awkward money exchange. I decided to book a room with Aunt Lucy in Guanajuato, Mexico.

    Not sure if people would have been too keen to actually talk about what was going on in my head if were to do a stop n chat… This was the day the Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins had admitted to attempting to rape a one year old baby, with consent from the child’s parents.

    ... From what I could tell, they shoot off a number of them every hour on the hour, or something to that effect. There was also music floating through the windows of the classroom. I happened to also have a meeting with Sue, my teacher, that afternoon. So, I left for my meeting about 15 minutes early so I could follow the music (which was in the same basic direction as the meeting), and watched the dancing, took some ...
