After binging through the four episodes, viewers have said they're 'too scared to sleep', which is totally understandable considering the hotel has been home to dozens of deaths.

One person said: "I was up late last night and decided to watch the first episode of Cecil Hotel lol and the way i refused to sleep after that bc I was so hyperaware of the sounds around me at 3 in the morning."

The documentary series is directed by Joe Berlinger (whose previous work includes The Ted Bundy Tapes) and delves into the mysterious happenings at the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles.

The eerie establishment is renowned for mysterious deaths and a number of suicides between the 1930s-1960s. Serial killer Richard Ramirez, the subject on Netflix documentary Night Stalker, even stayed in the hotel for several weeks during the 1980s.

But the Netflix doc hones in on one case in particular - the shocking and mysterious disappearance of 21-year-old Canadian student Elisa Lam, who vanished while staying at the hotel.

Elisa's disappearance garnered international attention several years ago, when CCTV footage of her in the hotel elevator went viral online.

In the clip, she appeared to be acting erratically, talking and gesturing towards the corridor, before entering and exiting the elevator several times.

The footage was unsettling, and many claimed paranormal activity could have been behind her disappearance. One month after she vanished, Elisa's body was recovered from a water tank on the roof of the hotel.
