Scotland fans sent to German 'dungeon' in Euro 2024 accommodation nightmare

Scotland fans sent to German 'dungeon' in Euro 2024 accommodation nightmare

It wasn't quite the comforting shelter they were hoping for

Some Scottish fans have been having a bit of a nightmare at Euro 2024 thus far, and not just because of the football.

The Tartan Army have plenty of reasons to despair after getting thrashed 5-1 in the opening fixture of the competition by the host nation Germany.

However, plenty of Scotland fans will be hoping that they were simply beaten by a much better team they had little hope of winning against in the first place, and might be able to salvage the situation in their remaining group games against Switzerland and Hungary.

Spare a thought for those fans who had to watch their team get battered and then go back to some sub-par accommodation.

Football fan Rory took to social media to show everyone his living arrangements for Euro 2024, which he described as an 'absolute shambles' and it's really not hard to see why.

When he and his mates rocked up to where they were supposed to be staying, which had been booked through Booking.com, they found their rooms to be in a right state.

One of their bed frames was just cardboard held together with duct tape, while the other place to sleep was a 'broken and disgusting' sofa bed.

After a few hours on the phone, he claimed that Booking.com had said they'd cover the cost of alternative accommodation.

However, when they got to the new place, they ended up in what Rory described as 'a dungeon that must have been some sort of abandoned medical facility'.

There were hospital beds, industrial equipment and in a video Rory showed that they'd managed to find an axe just lying around.

The lads thought this felt a bit too 'human trafficking horror film' for their tastes and after discovering that the front door didn't even lock, the Scots settled on skedaddling.

They got on the phone to Booking.com again, who, according to Rory, told them that they'd have to find somewhere else and could invoice the company.

Sadly, after forking over about £2,000 in accommodation costs, they couldn't really afford to pay for more and wait for a refund later.

Fortunately, the gang eventually managed to find some alternative accommodation for the next few days and now they're begging for Scotland to win their remaining group games as recompense.

A Booking.com spokesperson said: "This is not the experience we would want for anyone booking a stay on our platform and are in touch with the customer, so we can look into what happened and to make sure they are properly supported."
