    STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. Arrived Thursday evening with my family. When i entered the unbearable smell hit me, the corridor looked scrappy and dirty. I was given a bed linen that was kept in the kitchen where someone fried something minutes before. It stank. Bedrooms were very basic, dirty, smelled bad and there were lots of hols in the walls. Overall it was the most dirty disgusting place.I've moved out the same night even that i have paid the full amount!
