It may be bad but you get free rent after the first night. They let you avoid paying for weeks, just a post it reminder on the door. just get out before the month is over

Dirty Rooms, Filthy Kitchen, Broken Toilets and BED BUGS!! little vampires ate me all night, and didn't take me out for a date. Staff and guys that stay up all night look at you like a piece of meat. One even followed me to the bathroom and was still standing nearby after my shower. I only stayed one night and... More

I don't think I saw of one person staying there who wasn't scratching from a bed bug bite. DO NOT STAY HERE! It's not worth it. If you're... More

The fridge is filthy with broken eggs and spilt food all over the floor. It is dangerous to keep food in. The ovens constantly leak gas.... More

The problem is that there has been no upkeep for what appears to be a really long time. We booked a private room, knowing that the place had some bad... More

We stayed for one night only and my boyfriend was bitten by bed bugs. Horrible atmosphere, grumpy staff and smelly rooms. In the end we had our money back, which was the only good thing!
