2/10 Poor

For this 2 days the bad way the manager Megan and some of her staff did wasnt good. She was so bad insulting me onnpremises that your prise is too small to pay, why is it then on the web? Thereafter she became ugly and said l am a person livi g on the street wh8ch isnt so, l travel all over the world l sometimes struggle with my visa and has to extend she is so bad she incriminated me so l report her at police she even insulted my businesspartner when he phoned her, its completely not a professional business and the complete setup has a bad vibe all tourists get sick because of the condition 8f thempremises its no use the place get painted and flòorwashed as serious bacteria and viruses infected all tourist, there is proof of it. Then Megan apso make people to pay the staff stole some of my money by me paying cash on extention, and l never saw the 800 l paid the reception just denies and when l questioned Megan had a bad attitude asif nothing happened, the next time l came from Cape Town again l booked online the same receptionist whom stole previous 800 from me called Megan who refused my stay at 12 pm night which l had to go somewhere else, just becaus she said she dont like my face and Megan send onmprevious occations to me threat messages which l showed police and they noted it. She also insulted my businespartner when we were with a person in hospital who was in his deathbed and she insisted me to remove my luggage from their storage. She overcharged many tourist + me.
