I am from the outskirts of Liverpool and even I thought this was rough. I stayed here, on a budget when I was in university, going to a gig in London city centre.
When we got there, there was a crew of about 12 teenagers, sitting on the step of the entrance, snarling me and my friend, as we walked in. We got in there and I had to check if I made of glass. The receptionist took about 10 minutes to notice that we had arrived. When she did eventually wake up, we where escorted. Escorted outsite the hotel (past the rooms that were advertised on the website) and down the stairs to some rough looking ghetto street.
When we got in there. We walked into the kitchen and were greeted by a Ugandan family. Where they living here? Where we staying in their home?! We got to the room (A locked room within the house) where my mate was really upset by the feeling of being intrusive in another peoples home.
At night, I couldn't hear myself think over the police sirens.
Crazy place and I don't know how they get away with selling people these hotel rooms.
