    • Wall guesthouse in Port au Prince is horrible -- any other recommendations?

      Haiti Feb 27, 2012 at 3:49 PM

      We used to stay at the Wall Guest House - but there's a voyeur on their staff & the place is unsafe for women (not just the voyeur: no locks on doors, broken windows in showers, no curtains).

      We found the hotel by the airport is decent & has air conditioning (same price as the crappy Wall house) but we want more choices.
