New Years eve 2005....arrived at Hadd Rin sometime around 1pm....looked everywhere for a place to stay. A couple aussies and Amy and I took turns between looking for a bungalow AND having beers on Chicken corner. Finally - and by complete luck - we found a single bungalo on the sunset beach. Basically the place was bairly suitable for us to leave our packs....after all, it was new yrs and we werent going to sleep anyway.
Well, as we thought, it was the absolute worst place I have ever stayed.
Moral of the story, when you are desperate your standards will drop immensely. Since it was new yrs, we had no choice BUT it was better than the alternative of having no where to stay. There are many many places on the island of this low low quality....Yikes, even by my standards it was terrible.....we high tailed out of there the next morning at 9am...I might never have felt dirtier! Be careful to plan and adaptable if you have to spend a single night (in a jam) in a plce like this.

Unique Qualities: Just outside of town on the sunset least night was quieter than sunrise wise anyway.
