If you have stayed in this shelter, how was your stay?

User Answers

  1. It was ok, but not optimal: the bathroom was all beat up and had a terrible smell, the people there seemed all drunk, and a guy right next to me was masturbating under the sheets. Otherwise it was ok. Clean bedsheets, staff would go around with a flashlight before sleep to check if everyone was ok.
