this place is beyond a disaster, the cleanliness of this place is utterly unacceptable. I found a raman noodle wrappers under the bed along with cigarette buts, the bathroom had papers all over the floor. And not to mention the heat doesn't work at all! The bed isn't to bad but the overall cleanliness is a -0!!! No wonder it... More
