I booked online and having seen the location of the accommodation I thought it would be ok for just a 1 night stop before I drove up the coast. Upon arrival I was waiting at the desk around 15 mins to check in and the woman on the desk walked past me twice completely ignoring me before eventually checking me in, I paid and was given a key to room 5 and told where it was. I had booked a 6 share dorm room and as I have been travelling for the last 10 months I accept that many dorm rooms are untidy that's to be expected but what I walked into was a joke.
The room was stinking as soon as I opened the door I noticed, the carpet was covered in dirt, the sheets and towels were badly stained, the plaster was coming off the walls, there was obviously 2 men living in the room which is fine however there were empty beer bottles all over the floor, the kitchenette was filthy, the sink full of dirty dishes, porridge all over the side, even the kettle was filthy.
As you can imagine the bathroom was no better, dirty towels on the floor, shower head hanging off, mud on the shower floor, the toilet looked like it had never been cleaned either.
There was no way I would ever have stayed there even for 1 night. I went straight back to reception and handed the key back telling the woman what I thought of the place, she immediately have me a full refund and it was clear she had heard it all before and didn't care.
I hope nobody else books here and has to stay in such unsanitary conditions, I luckily found somewhere else to stay but would have rather slept in my car than there.
