The sheets were covered in cigarette ashes, the carpet had not been vacuumed nor dusted in quite some time. The cups left in the room for tea service were dirty and stained. The room smelled of mold, cigarettes and stale. The location was loud as being off a high street can be while the store alarms went off for over an hour belowstairs. It was not safe for us to leave the hostel at night to go eat so we ordered in. One of the rooms reserved had holes in the wall and band-aids on the ceiling.
