Nick's is about as grungy as they come.

The poorly-lit rooms are devoid of any character whatsoever and utterly depressing. The share bathrooms are no better with missing toilet seats and dark tiles which mask the grime -- a totally disappointing scene. But make no mistake; Nick's is cheap and some with no money will choose one of the dorm rooms here, but be warned that you need to be brave and unconcerned with dirt. This place is definitely not suitable for the vast majority of travellers, but serves a purpose for the desperately cheap.
