YUK!

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 8, 2011

This place is filthy, I mean disgusting and there is no excuse. Archie and his sons sit on the computer or lie in bed almost all day. I come from poverty and find this kind of lazy filth unacceptable, especially when I have to pay for the benefit of living in it! The only thing going for Archies House is it's location for which Archie has to do nothing. I have stayed all over Europe in prime location, budget hostels which have all been clean and well run by friendly people who knew the business they were in. Archie is taking the p*** and has no respect for his customers.
It was depressing to spend all day in this beautiful city knowing we had to go back each night the this crumbling, stinking squat.
Go and see for yourself.

Unique Quality: The bags and bits of broken mirrors and plactic covering the massive holes in the crumbling walls.
The deep scum covering the bath room walls, mirrors.
The dirt that covers the bits of carpet so deeply they all merge into one solid filthy matting.
The fact that they charge to stay here!
The b****** who lives next door who turns his hose pipe on you if you dare smoke in the crumbling courtyard.
