I'll list the problems: - On street parking with no security guards - The bedding seemed to be dirty (un- ironed, hair in the bed, we were bitten by bed bugs, bed was half broken) - No fan - The shower ceiling was a complete health hazard with black mould 🤮 - Not in a safe (or quiet) area We have stayed in various backpackers all over the world and this was by far the worst we've ever experienced 🤦🏻‍♀️
