This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Was fine for what it advertised, great if you are just passing through. I know another review mentioned bugs...they aren't bedbugs but these other ones that came down between the moudling and the wall in the ceilingat night. They bit any exposed skin and took over a week to heal. Much itchier than mosquito bites. They seemed to suck quite a bit of blood, as I squished one just after biting and it stained the sheet. I've never seen a bug quite like it, looked like a tick but squished very easily. I recommend requesting a bed on the first floor, there is no way for the bugs to crawl down as the ceiling is concrete. Otherwise it was a really nice place.
