Reviewer says...
Decrepit, poorly-maintained, disgustingly dirty property. Garbage build up around the unit, not uncommon to see garbage scattered around the property. Despite maintaining a clear interior, there was a severe problem with bugs (spiders, woodlice, larvae coming from holes in the floor, beetles, etc) and rodents (mice, rats). Windows are old, and do not open. The screens in the windows are full of holes (so even if by chance you get a window to open, you can't keep it open). Serious sags in the floor (hopefully you don't have heavy furniture). Impossible to have a hot shower due to the whole building being on a single water tank, and all appliances are outdated (causing hydro bills to be absurdly expensive). Walls are extremely thin (you'll get to know your neighbours really well). The parking lot is absolute anarchy, if you have a car (and you pay for parking) expect to have your spot taken regularly by strangers to the building not paying for parking. Oh, and if you ask the landlord for help with any of these issues -- consider yourself lucky if you receive a response, even if it is a month or two after you contacted them as the management is consistently on a hiatus.
