Bed bugs.Pros: Nothing.Cons: I didnt like waking up with 25+ bed bug bites all over my body. Nor did i like throwing my clothing out due to the fact. As soon as i walked through the door i was offered to buy drugs in the hallway. The upstairs which i thought was a aingle room is back to back closets with a wooden plank and a dirty bug ridden mattress.
Experience a Sweatshop Cons: About as close to turn of the century immigrant experience as one can come without time travel...it makes the Tenement Museum look like a day spa! I cannot believe this place is allowed to exist - absolutely filthy beyond belief. The "singles" are just beds divided by dry wall....
Bed Bugs, filthy bathrooms, no wifiPros: NothingCons: The sheets were stained, which I later found out was because bed bugs leave behind blood from their bites and their excrement. My last morning there, I found a bed bug crawling across the sheets. I killed it with my finger nail and it spurted blood all over! Gross! Now I am riddled with bites on my arms, legs, feet, and ears. The bathrooms are cleaned once a day, meaning after the first few uses in the morning, they are filthy; the showers leak onto the floor and get everything wet. The room barely fits the bed you are in. I found hair on my blankets. The walls are literally painted-over plywood, so there is no privacy and you can hear everything in the hall. The wifi - the whole reason I went with this place - never worked at all, and the staff was completely unapologetic about it. They should be shut down. I can't believe this place has an "OK" rating. It's a ripoff. And now I'm afraid I've spread bedbugs to my own bed at home.
BedbugsPros: NothingCons: Bedbugs were everywhere. The sheets and pillow had died bedbug stains from where I guess people killed them. The clientele where loud and vulgar and since the ceiling is open you hear everything. Heard drug deals, somebody threatening to kill his woman and her new boyfriend, etc...
Filthy, staff doesn't speak English, noisyPros: I liked nothing about this hotel, there are no ceilings in the room, the rooms are the size of a small rest room, I was charged twice on my credit card. The place smelled like bar, no one came to clean my room in the 4 days I was there, horrible
worst room and hotel I've ever seen by far. black Pros: Absolutely nothing room was violation of building code, genuine hovelCons: See above terrible filthy room. No ceiling could see light from hall at all times. Room was really a windowless cubicle could hear noise from management all night. So much black mold it was scary. Not a hotel, scary place
AVOID AT ALL COSTSPros: Nothing Cons: Everything, this place is disgusting, room was literally a closet right outside of front desk, it was so tiny, and stuffy, no windows, and we were subjected to the front desk guy yelling in chinese ALL night, bed is a piece of foam, shared bathroom. AWFUL!!!! Never seen something so terrible, every hostel has been nicer AND cheaper!!! It cost me $80 USD for this hell hole!! Slept fully clothed because it was so gross.
