DO NOT IGNORE THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS THIS PLACE HAS RECEIVED! They are entirely valid, and you ignore them at your own peril.
Not even a low price can justify this squalid excuse of a bedsit.
The service is dire, upon arrival we were met by a pre-pubescent teen who honestly did know how to do her job. She didnt know where our key was, half mumbled an apology, told us to use our card to pay would incur a 2.5% charge, even though nowhere on the booking site was this mentioned. Then, to top of her repugnant service, she didnt even show us to our room, which was 2 floors up.
Upon traversing these narrow stairs, we encountered hammers, ladders, and nails carelessly left on the stairs with the workman nowhere to be seen. It is understandable to be doing work, but a) to not have your receptionist guide you up when you know work is being done, and b) to leave large tools all over the stairs and not safely and tidily when not in use is unforgivable.
The room was horrendous. The carpet was FILTHY, you could almost see the fleas dancing merrily, i dared not take off my shoes, there was no wardrobe, the furniture barely deserves the name, literally ramshackle odd bits they have put in without a thought as to where they should go. Consequently the tv is on a cabinet with no drawers, there is a kettle and lamp in one corner of the room on a footstool, and there is one bedside cabinet on one side of a double bed (2 singles put together).
Further, they have converted what looks like a wardrobe into a bathroom. It does not have a door in the conventional sense, it literally does appear to be a former built in closet. It is so small you could literally be sitting on the toilet, whilst brushing your teeth at the sink, with your legs in the shower.
The toilet nearly comes off the wall when you sit on it, there was no hot water, no plug hole, pubic hairs in the shower, and the shower looked like it belonged in a concentration camp. Consequently, I didnt even wash whilst staying here because I felt as though I would get contaminated if I took my clothes off.
There is no breakfast either, which was ok as you would neither expect it at this price, nor want it from such a hovel.
It doesnt even feel safe. The room locks barely deserve the name, the rooms are so dilapidated you feel there could be voyeur cameras everywhere, and it honestly was extremely uncomfortable, and I say this as a man who has slept in quite a few rough places.
Honestly, please do not give such undeserving scoundrels your money. You may feel you are saving your money, but unless your alternative is sleeping outside in the rain, then I cannot stress enough that you are very likely to be disappointed.
