It was cheap and there was a nice sense of community with the other guests as we all agreed it was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. We had fun comparing the shocking states of our rooms.
So many things to dislike! The room was dirty. A previous guest had used the drawer as a bin and this hadn't been emptied. There were suspicious dark red stains over the bathroom and toilet rolls. Fortunately those turned out to be red hair dye. Well we hope so guessing by the stained hair dye instructions left in the bin drawer.
The bathroom was stained brown and yellow with bits of mould. A chunk of wall was missing where the door had been kicked in. Our bathroom had an extractor fan hummed loudly and irritatingly throughout the night and early morning. Just when we wanted to sleep really. The bed gave us aching necks and stiff backs. There was a damaged plug socket and an ancient broken trouser press.
These were just the things wrong with our room. We spoke to other guests and each room had it's own unique failings.
We didn't bother to complain as the staff looked like they hated the place as much the guests do. The poor guys have to work there everyday. The last thing they need is more guests complaining about things they don't plan on fixing.
Oh and we didn't put up a "do not disturb" sign as there were none in the room yet our room was not cleaned, towels not changed and tea and milk not given during our 3 night stay. When we ran out of toilet paper we were resentfully handed some by the silent and stone faced staff member.
If you can tolerate dirt, discomfort, noise and pervading sense of despair, then this hotel is a bargain.
