Yes, this is an incredible location for a relatively good price, and the bed and room were even clean. We were okay within the room itself.
However, the hallways were disgusting, covered in dust as if they hadn't been vacuumed in years, and more importantly, we did not see one fire extinguisher or fire alarm that appeared to be up to code. There was a fire alarm hanging out of its socket, and the glass case of the fire extinguisher on our floor had been broken. It looked like the fire extinguisher had been used but not replaced. In an old, creaky, 5-floor building, we were VERY nervous that if something happened we would be toast!
Also, the SHARED BATHROOM was not nice, or clean. Broken toilet seat, no soap, and we couldn't bear to even step in the shower.
I have traveled all over the world and I am okay with some level of dirt and grime. But it's NOT OKAY to feel unsafe.
Run away as fast as you can and pay the extra 40$ somewhere else!!
