There were people living there for months, which means they partied in the living room and there were drunk people on the corridors (which stink). The sheets on the bed were dirty and it was impossible to sleep at night due to the noise from the streets and, during the weekends, due to the parties the people living there made...

When the room has no mildewed walls the place...

If I could I would give a 0 star review for this place. Do NOT be tempted by the cheap price and think 'it's only for one night!' This place seriously needs to be investigated and closed down, it felt very very unsafe - many of the guests looked to be living there; they looked homeless, dirty, suspicious and looked...
