very cheap, for a very central location. But the rooms still look and smell like way back when it was a half-way house, and need a makeover. Ditto toilet/bathrooms. But then that would put the price up, so I'm OK staying here

Run down, smelly, incredibly noisy. Hostile signs everywhere. Worse place I have ever stayed, would have been better off in a tent

The only room we could get was a room with a bunk bed in it and considering we are 68 and 70, we both slept on the bottom bunk for the one night we were there.
