4/10 Fair

First night I was provided with my room number and key - it was dirty, full of rubbish and stank of weed smoke. I slept on a plastic covered mattress with no sheets, only a doona with no cover. The next morning I was informed by a staff member that it was mistakenly given a key to a 'Work for board' room and they had a clean room for me. It was an improvement, at least it had clean sheets, but the bathroom was very dirty and I tried to avoid spending any time in the place.
