Woman who paid £150 for a night away discovers it's a shared house

Woman, 23, who paid £150 for a night away with friends is left in hysterics on realising she booked two rooms in a SHARED house with a group of girls, a dirty kitchen and a rubbish-strewn garden

  • Holly Long, 23, from York, booked a stay in Manchester for her and two friends
  • She paid £150 for the night and thought she had booked an entire holiday let
  • But it was two rooms in a shared house, where another group were also staying 
  • Holly and her friends listened to the group ‘arguing’ and found a filthy garden 

A woman was left in hysterics when she discovered she accidentally booked rooms in a shared house for a trip away with friends, rather than an entire holiday let.

Hairdresser Holly Long, 23, of York, paid £150 for the night in Manchester with her friends Callum Clancy and Liam Cates, after finding the property on Booking.com. 

It was only when the friends arrived that they realised they had reserved two rooms in a shared house where a group of girls was also staying. 

Hysterical: Hairdresser Holly Long, 23, of York, paid £150 for the night in Manchester with her friends Callum Clancy and Liam Cates, after finding the property on Booking.com. But on arrival they discovered they had booked two rooms in a shared house with a filthy garden

Stunning views: Holly shared a TikTok video giving a tour of the house, including the garden that was strewn with rubbish and a filthy mattress (pictured)

Shared accommodation: A group of girls were also staying at the property and had left plates of half-eaten curry and empty fizzy drink cans on the kitchen counter

To add to the problems, there was a half-eaten curry on the kitchen counter and a rubbish-strewn garden, complete with stained mattress. 

Holly, Callum and Liam saw the funny side and recorded a video of the mishap that went viral on TikTok. 

The friends tried to stifle their laughter at hearing the other group rowing in another room, while Holly gave a tongue-in-cheek tour of the property and its ‘room with a view’ of the filthy garden. 

She explained: ‘I booked this place in Manchester on Booking.com, we paid £150 for the night which I wouldn’t have minded if the rooms were actually okay but I thought I’d booked the whole place.

‘Me and my best friends pulled up and literally almost died when we realised we were in a shared house and all of the lights were on meaning people were already in.

‘The smell of curry was so strong as soon as we walked in, we went into the kitchen to find a bowl of curry with the skin over it which was obviously causing the smell.

Seeing the funny side: Holly and her friends fought back giggles as they documented the mishap in a hilarious TikTok video. The clip has racked up more than 12,000 likes

‘As we were getting ready to head to the Christmas markets the other guests in the house were literally screaming at each other for ages. They were arguing from the second we got there.

‘The next morning when I was hungover I opened the curtains to find there were literally mounds of rubbish stacked outside the window and a bed thrown into the garden too for good measure.

‘When I saw the garden I nearly p****d my pants.

‘It was my fault really, but it doesn’t say it’s a shared house and I should have looked at the reviews because they’re nothing but red flags but I obviously didn’t look into it well enough.

Holly’s TikTok video has racked up more than 12,000 likes and hundreds of comments

‘We just laughed about it so much, safe to say I won’t be taking charge of booking our accommodation again.’

Holly’s TikTok video has racked up more than 12,000 likes and hundreds of comments. 

One wrote: ‘The room with the view that did it for me, I am laughing my a** off girl.’

Another added: ‘This is hilarious.’ 

A third jokingly posted: ‘Get out there or you’ll be getting chopped up.’
