    1) Did you guys still keep cockroaches all around the premises? 2) Are the bed sheets still over used, sweated and not clean? 3) Does the reception still smells like terrible cat piss? 4) Are the bedbugs still present in all the rooms? 5) Is the owner still turning a blind eye for all the drug consumption all around the premises? 6) Is the owner still verbally and sometimes physically abusing his customers when he is on beers? 7) Is the owner still neglecting to provide invoice receipt for his customers? 8) Is the owner still throwing customers belongings at the bin without communicating?
