I spent 6 nights in a 4-woman room. Apparently all the other women live there full-time, and their stuff covered all available space in the tiny room, and included dirty dishes and food. The closet was packed with their stuff; the bathroom floor and toilet covered with their toiletries, laundry, and shoes. They were in the place throughout the day, sometimes with a boyfriend, glued to their laptops without even a response to a greeting! Needless to say, I spent only the briefest time possible in that room.
One morning I was chatted up by an inquisitive drunk Romanian guy staying there. After I finally got rid of him, the receptionist, who was standing outside the front door smoking with another guy as I left, apologized to me for "our friend." If the receptionist felt the need to apologise, then he should have been more proactive about getting the guy out of there, and into his own room or something, and not just allow him bother other guests.
On th plus side - free wifi with one (of two) working computers in a little hole of a closet, which was good for me, as I hadn't brought my laptop. And, it IS cheap.
