TikTok divided over 'nightmare' $6 hotel room: 'No way'

·2-min read

Travelling on a budget always results in some questionable choices, but would you stay in a one-star hotel to save a few dollars?

One TikToker has divided viewers after posting a video at a one-star hotel, leaving users wondering if it's worth staying in the "horror hotel" — even if it is cheap.

The hotel— located in Osaka, Japan — only sets people back 500 yen per night (just over $6), although some argue it's not even worth that.

TikTok user Jesse Ogn showed off his sweet digs —which is barely wider than a single mattress — in the video, with over 3.3 million views so far.

Room included 'funky smell and stained mattress'

He started with the bedding, consisting of a moss-green blanket and floral pillow before panning over to a questionable looking mattress.

"The room came with [a] pillow, blanket, stained mattress and TV," Mr Ogn said in the voiceover, showing off all the room's features.

"The room had a funky smell but I couldn't open the window because it was broken," he explained, showing himself trying to open the window.

He then demonstrated how small the room is, with only a couple of inches of room above his head when he's standing up straight.

He then ends off the tour with the entrance of the hotel — complete with wanted posters of criminals.

Users were divided on the hotel, some claiming it was a good deal while others said they'd pay not to stay there.

"If I was single and broke, that's a deal," one user said.

"What do you expect?" questioned another.

"For a place rated 1 star, I can let the room pass," someone else said. "But the wanted poster is too much."

Some said they thought it was pretty reasonable.

"Same room would probably be at least $50 a night in New York," someone commented.

"I can survive that on my solo travels," added another.

Others pointed out that for some people with nowhere else to go it could save their life.

"Better than sleeping on streets..in emergency, at a cold day, it is ok," one user pointed out.
