On the outside - looks friendly and colourful! However on the inside my opinion changed!
The room we stayed in was a four bed room which we shared between us! Considering we are four students and are used to rough conditions, we were surprised at how bad this was!
The bunk beds squeaked all night and were tied together as were broken, the lights didn't work and the window was covered over with a bag as it was broken!
The bedding was full of mites (bed bugs) and two of us got badly bitten! the sheets were also stained and looked dirty.
The women in-charge also decided to just unlock our room one night and just walk in (funny considering it was a private room). This creeped us out and we felt as if she could come in at any time
The guests here were basically all homeless people and were very intimidating shouting and all hours and arguing amongst each other, they also were very drunk on many occasions and the smell of weed was very strong.
On top of all of this the one shower downstairs for about 20 people was so dirty the two girls in my group wouldn't us it. Even the homeless guests were complaining. The toilets were also in a terrible state and looked as if they had been last cleaned several months ago!
In my opinion i would never recommend anyone stayed here, or at least i would advise you take care if you are desperate!
