For these conditions, stay at a hostel
Posted Mar 10, 2011
Our room had evidently not been cleaned in months. The sheets were dirty, the pillow case had clearly been recently slept upon by some unwashed and hirsute individual, and the duvet featured both unidentifiable yellow stains, and more readily identifiable blood stains. We asked to change sheets, and the bellhop complied immediately. However, when he removed the old ones, we noticed behind the bed, some kleenex, a cigarette butt, a great deal of dust, and one of the largest hairballs I have ever seen. We asked to change rooms. The second room was better, but still had stained sheets and piles of dust. We waited while they cleaned it. Although a major improvement in terms of cleanliness, we found out later that the shower did not work properly. By this time we were too tired to address the issue. On the plus side, the staff was responsive, and the state of the hotel is probably not entirely their fault. The flat screen TV appears to be new, and the free wireless is what I am using to write this review. Overall, though, best to give this one a miss.
