The kettle lead was so short it didn’t reach the socket unless it was on the floor the remove for the tv was slit in half so didn’t work properly so you had to stand on the bed to work it the shared toilet and shower the toilet leaked from behind so the floor was wet and horrid smell the shower room door wouldn’t lock it was freezing cold the shower hose was so high you couldn’t adjust it and leaked so you showered underneath the faster drip in middle of hose the folding door folded more in than out restricting space to move
