as we walked from the underground station to the hotel in the middle of the afternoon we passed groups of homeless people, strong smells of cannibis and all sorts of other interesting people! as we got closer to the hotel we passed one women sitting on the pavement shotting up with heroin from a kinder egg cup. a nice start to the break! the reception staff were friendly and helpful, the room was basic but clean and shower was hot and powerful. we were on the 5th floor, the large sash window opened all the way - no safety on it and didnt seem to lock in anyway and there was a fire escape just outside. some floors on the hotel stunk of cannibis and sometimes when we had the window open (had to wedge it open with a book and took both us us to lift it open) the smell wafted in too. we paid $80 per night for two of us for b and b. you do get what you pay for, my only concern was the safety, seemingly anyone could walk in off the street and head straight for the lifts and staircase.
