>talk with the owner

every single time
how that makes him fraud
Because he isnt offering a RT-experience
If a youtuber has a retarded face on the thumbnail I will not watch their video
So far it's been a good filter
so you watch like 2% of youtube?
Less than that.
>2% of youtube
That would be an utterly ridiculous amount considering there is more than 700k hours of video uploaded per day
You must watch some retarded normie suit if 98% of your YouTube is that
unless the creator got 1 million subs I wont watch
That's a retarded metric to go by.
You would need to be immortal to watch more than 2% of what has been uploaded to Youtube.
could be a good browser extension
When i stayed 5 years in fuchu prison
i stayed in aberdeen WA before
the armpit of the west coast
first week into doing a eurotrip I made the stupid decision to get the cheapest airbnb in Paris which happened to be dead in the middle of Saint Denis. The host spoke only spanish. No english or french. There was no internet because it was being "repaired", the TV didn't work, the stove didn't work, there was limited hot water, the place was filthy because it's clear she was living there so there was hair and other gross shit everywhere and the bed was 2 sofa couches on top of one another and when you sat on it, it basically folded in half.
I learnt a lot of valuable lessons that week.
There is "lower than expectations" and then there is dreadful
I don't think I have stayed anywhere soo bad that I could expect better given the price. Probably a hostel I stayed a couple times but the damn bathroom door did not even shut but it was in front of the toilet so I blocked it with my feet and made some noise so it was occupied. That bathroom was disgusting but obviously no one cleaned it bc the owner was never there and the staff were all volunteers so they did not give a shit or do any work, mostly ignoring people coming in.
I stayed in a run down hotel in Italy for a night yet the bed was very comfortable and the staff was nice, it just was old and the door lock was hard to use with old style key.
i stayed in a two star hotel in the outskirts of paris on a work trip once. i picked it because it was close to the place i was working.
the hotel was pretty bad but i've stayed in worse. but, the first night i was there, there was a riot nearby. muslims fucking everything up for who knows what reason. i stayed in my room. fortunately the riot didn't reach the hotel.
next morning i had to walk past burned out cars, looted shops etc on my way to work
Ciudad Juarez (Chihuahua, Mexico) has some gnarly budget hotels. When I visited in 2021, they cost between 12 and 15 dollars per night. Receptionists were suHispanicious and unfriendly. "No refunds" was displayed prominently, for good reason. Rooms reeked of sewage; retarded Mexicans built showers with straight drainpipes, so the sewer smells fill the room. I put a plastic bag over the drain and poured water on top to reduce the odor, but even with open windows, the stink never went away. Whores and drunks being loud at all hours of the night, ancient tube TVs blaring and echoing down the hallway, stained and torn sheets, smelly blankets, wires poking through a mattress that should be in the landfill. Everything in the room covered in grime and beat to shit.
I stayed somewhere exactly like that in Sinaloa like 15 years ago. Also a place that was cozy but the power in that town at the time was only 8 am-8 pm. The place was in the mountains and freezing at night. The owner gave me a wool poncho to wear.
AirBNBs in Europe
Nearly all of them
Why what specifically?
I haven't had a bad experience staying at hotels since I can simply use my Tap mastercard to pay for anything. However, I've had some unpleasant experiences at airports due to the prevalence of snatchers. It's unfortunate kek.
This place in Guaymas cost 300 pesos, about 16 dollars at the time. Ancient grimy mattress had a pit in the middle, was covered by a plastic bag which promptly slid off. Only one sheet, which was filthy with hair and dirt upon arrival - they did change it for me upon request. No blankets. No hot water. Noisy traffic outside. No room key - staff had to unlock my door for me every time I returned. Views were nice and the room didn't smell bad, so I can't say it's the worst place I've stayed.
a net cafe in Tokyo.
>sleeping in what's essentially a bathroom stall without a toilet
>can't turn off the lights
>can hear everyone walking around
>you have to tell the guy at the counter how long you'll be there, you can't just say "indefinitely."
>if you check out one minute late you pay an extra fee.
I remember going to sleep thinking to myself "so this is what being homeless is like."
Why did you stay in one? For the experience or was it too late to find a hostel?
Realtraveler here, I've got some strong contenders and not just some shit I saw on goytube.
There are rooms that are cheap, it's a bed in a pokey room, the bathroom is in the hall. I consider that the benchmark of bare minimum, for a room to be "bad" there actually has to be somthing wrong with it
1. Bordello room. The benchmark room but there's 10 of them and cheap whores are fucking all night in every room but your room. You probably paid the equivilent of ten one hour sessions and didn't realise because the country is so cheap. On the upside nobody sticks around so it's safer than you might expect, in fact it probably has informal security.
2. Dive room. Benchmark room but its unclean, there's no room service, possibly no sheets or bedding. The hotel couldn't organise room service so just dropped the price for local alcoholics. Strong liklihood of bed bugs, the toilet is probably absolutely filthy, you're better off using the lobby toilet.
Upside is that this was once a hotel, it might have a swimming pool, parking, a bar, other amenities.
3. Tourist shack.
Some clever local built a shack in their back yard and listed it on booking.com. it worked because you're there.
No heating/AC, doesn't have a propper bed, insects inside, creepy local people will come to knock on your door or gawk at you. This isn't a dacha. Upside is that at least one local person is probably ashamed enough to invite you to their house for dinner and show you around town.
4. Paupers hostel
Imagine a hostel, but only for local migrant workers, thieves, drug addicts. It's usually somthing like 30 single beds in one room and the receptionist is the only thing between you and a gang rape. In some countries where itinerant labour is common these can be quiet civil orderly places where economic refugees from villages share dinner and a bottle of cheap liquor after a day of soul crushing labour. In other countries it's as civil as a greyhound bus and theres an assault every night
5. Nominal goverment accommodation
Someone in the tin pot tourism beuro decided this place should have an official state hotel. They visited once and that was ten years ago.
It's filthy, the people who work there are criminals who bullied their way into a free paycheck, you'll be accosted by a civil servent who tries to tell you what/ how you must do things in the town and will try to force you onto an official ittinery run by their cousin. Theres no hospitality or respect for your privacy, women aren't safe in any way, wealthy local men bring hookers here and travellers are on the menu.
6. Slum accommodation
It's not a room, there isn't a bed, the person you pay doesn't own it, it's just somewhere the police won't throw a homeless person out of overnight. A parking bay, a tin box in front of an office, two wooden crates stacked in an alley, a cloth square on the floor of a fowyer. If you make a mess you'll be beaten up, homeless rules apply, you may have to fight for the space overnight with other homeless people
7. Prison accommodation
You can pay the police to sleep in a cell. Why? The security is good, if you're prepared to take your chances with rapists in uniform. If you're stuck at a border, in a warzone, in a restricted area its often better to effectively pay off the police rather than risk being arrested later.
8. Drivers accommodation
In some countries this is just a road house, in others its a workers slum. Far higher chance of meth, gay rapists, unlikely to find friendly village people. The real issue is that the drivers think they own the place and that can make their hospitality/liquor/drugs hard to refuse.
9. Sleeping on the deck of a boat.
Wind is awful, exposed to the elements, no amenities, better than being detained onshore for visa violations or sleeping rough on the dockside with the junkies. The boat is at least privately owned.
10. The room plastered top to bottom in human faeces I was offered in India when I questioned how a government train station hotel could be "full".
11. The room adjoining an industrial metal press in khazakstan. There were unironically workers earmuffs next to the bed. I assume the workers were already totally deaf. Khazakstan has some post soviet industrial hellholes.
12. The room full of carbon monoxide. I walked in, somthing wasn't right, I walked out. Might have saved my life. After discussing this with the owner he said there was a "gas leak" but they fixed it. He/ they didn't understand that their gas heater was not leaking, it was just dumping toxic gas into the room. They heated the room before anyone arrived, leaving the room full of carbon monoxide.
13. The whole building in Georgia that was collapsing in on itself and had been deemed unfit for human habitation. I'm used to ruined or decayed but this was a structural issue, one day this whole building will/has collapsed into a heap of rubble. Seen similar in nepal and kampot.
14. Room where the sewer was pushing water/gas back up into the toilet, where it ran across the floor into the shower drain. Great.
15. The baits motel
Places inherited by a psychopathic son of some local beurocrat. Nobody ever stays there, he has no staff, he sits at the front counter nicely dressed and goes to pains to make you comfortable, he is the owner, receptionist, room service, maintainance guy, he asks you for a souvenir as evidence you stayed there, he shows you a souvenir wall. It's unclear how many of those people survived.
After the formalities he starts talking about his weapons, violent past, local grudges. Police arrive because they heard a tourist was staying there, police evidently arrive every time a tourist stays there. Most of what this man says is untrue or delusional, he follows guests to the next city or travels across the country to pick them up from airports. Great service if not for the social frustration and violence.
16. Room built over the top of the ceiling of another building. Hard to explain how this works structurally, it might work, or might not. What would happen if a block of flats just started extending rooms over the top of an adjacent warehouse, putting floor boards directly on the warehouse roof? You book it as the appartment, when you get there it turns out they are trying to billet you in this extension, they get angry if you don't want to stay. Why didn't booking.com remove them? They relisted themselves and that's why they instruct you to meet reception at the flats reception
WTF dude, get a different hobby
I'm partial to the itinerant worker dorms, personally. Nothing like being woken up in the middle of the night by wild eyed little brown homosexuals who think that if they pester you enough, you will let them put their diseased micrococks in your ass. Gay flirting in the third world seems to amount to being annoying until somebody let's you fuck them. At least that's what I gathered.
Many such cases. In the Islamic world they have no concept of homosexuality, they just pester each other for gay sex as if it's a favour. Hundreds of sexually frustrated broke men, they're not gay it's like prison rules.
Another good one is the orgy bus, it's a truck with bedding thrown in the back that transports migrant workers from one factory to the other. No windows, one rest stop.i can't work out if the orgy is a perk of the factory work, an act of desperation, or if there are normal trucks as well.
Ass fucking fucking, me you fucking, sir please do fucking ass. *shows you phone* big titty women fucking fucking.
Turns out some gay western tourists actually visit such places to experience bus orgies, so the drivers may assume you know what you're getting in for.
Well I wanted to see everything, and I saw some shit
Just finished reading this retarded homosexuals 1000 word list. For anyone wondering if it’s worth reading, no it is not.
I came to the same conclusion, when you get literal trv memes like
>The room plastered top to bottom in human faeces I was offered in India
I should've realized he was bullshitting
Only funny part was the orgy bus full of migrants, but it’s hard to tell if that’s a different guy. That could be the next forced SighSee meme
>What's the worst place you stayed at?
A "hotel" in Rodkini, Ivanovo oblast, Russia. Furniture from before the first world war, dirty as all fuck, so much mold in the bathroom that I didn't dare shower.
Then again it was 5 Euros a night.
