2/10 Poor

Give this dump a wide berth.
The staff member is very helpful and service oriented, however he has a poison chalice in managing this run-down property. The conditions are appalling, the premises are filthy, crumbling and I refused to sleep in the disgusting bed, using a sleeping bag that fortunately, I travel with. I have no clue why this dump is on It is exceptionally poor value for money. If I found it in remote Mongolia with no other options available, I would expect the fee to be a couple of USD at most.
