    The door to the toilet didn’t close. I don’t mind, but you should know there are no elevators; there were 58 steps to reach our room. It was good for the price, and excellent location for nightlife and shopping; a decent walk to the waterfront where I enjoyed looking at several species of birds.

    Wouldn’t have paid more than £5 if I knew how bad
    Guys - Yes it is cheap, but there is cheap abs then there is not even paying that little should allow anyone to stay in such a disgusting , shocking environment . So it starts with checking in, this is a sign in the door saying to go to the Kebab shop next door to collect keys, and then it starts you go in, and immediately start the climb, if your lucky it’s only 20 stairs to climb, abs they are steep to. If you are in room 7 like us, that is 75 stairs to climb, which is carpeted by a carpet that your feet stick to, it is filthy, then you get to your room. The door had foot marks as if it had been kicked in many times, then the room - Woooow - No pictures in the wall and curtains hanging off the rail, the walls had holes in the plaster, and hand marks all over them, the TV the size of a postage stamp, and the electric heater that ‘cannot be legal’ the beds would of been more comfortable if mad of concrete, and the bedding even though washed was covered in old stains. Again the carpet was torn and filthy. Then to finish there was the bathroom, urghhhh, the shower just abs I mean just produced water when turned on, and again the floor was disgusting… and when leaving on seeing the cleaner with 12 toilet roles with a price ‘£1.69’ on it summed it up - then the disaster was finalised by dropping the keys back to the kebab shop You may wonder why no photo’s and the truth is I wanted no trace of this stay anywhere to be found, as it was simply awful. Not worth a £5 stay away
