The elevator was out of service and my room was on the fifth floor and I had to take the stairs every time. The room is very small and its door did not lock properly. I have to make sure the door is closed or not. Having a sink inside it makes it worse because water splashes out on the floor. The room has a bad smell. The bathroom is shared and very small. There was a window in the bathroom where you can hear sounds that seems like some mice. Finally, the neighborhood is not quite good and there are a lot of people sleeping on the streets and they listen to music all the night.

It was dirty. The carpet throughout the building was crusty like a dog that has never been washed or groomed. They had no pride in their business. The shower was horrible and hot water took over 25 minutes to start up. The shower was not kept. Things were rusty. The bathrooms had no sinks to wash your hands, so you could imagine how dirty the door knobs are. The direct TV only had local channels and HBO. All other channels were locked out. I told the owner but he did not know what to do.

Stinky urine dirty bathroom!
Bathroom smelled like urine, there was an open window with a ladder leading to the window! Walls are super thin and there was very loud music and stomping around until midnight. Scary entrance with intimidating scary people out front. Toom was clean and there as a nice blanket. Please wash the bathroom!!!
