I am an experienced world traveler and have stayed in all types of accommodations, so this seeming a little sketchy didn't scare me off.

No elevator-walk up 5 or 6 floors, filthy common area with no one sweeping or taking out trash; flies. No refrigerator/and or microwave. Parking is not provided.
