These problems have persisted and only gotten worse since us first visiting in 2012. | The sink in the room is filthy as is the counter near it and the fridge. Fridge is filthy and broken, missing shelves, rusted metal corners, moldy rotten fruit inside, has no freezer door, etc. | Wiring done in rooms using chopped off pieces of extension cords routed under metal bed frames and under carpeting, a death trap. Urine on the walls, someone actually poured urine on the wall next to the bed frames in our room. | The upper portion of the bunk bed is broken and can’t be used since the top bunk will crash down onto the lower bed. Toilet seats are loose, they slide all over and off the toilets. | Toilets and showers are cramped and dirty it is all but impossible to use them. Hallways are badly abused and have graffiti and vandalism done to them. Doors to the rooms are broken, have holes in them, coming off the hinges, and locks do not work. | This starts to look like a crack house and heroin emporium. A shooting gallery in other words. The showers and bathrooms have broken fixtures, broken soap and tissue dispensers, broken tiles with sharp edges, bits of rusted metal things all over the place. Horrid. | Many of the lamp fixtures are broken, the bulbs are burned out. They have constant problems with roaches and bugs, people spraying poison all over the place all the time instead of fixing it right. | Ongoing inspections have people who claim to be fire inspectors in viewing the building, yet they do little more than be abusive to the people staying there, arguing with them, but in fact seeing NONE of the problems with the place. Insane. | Avoid this death trap for sure.
