Do you believe in ghosts? Would you be ready to pay £65 ($92) to spend the night in a house where ghosts have been spotted so many times, the owner has never managed to rent it for more than four days?

Whether or not you think paranormal activity is an excuse for homeowners to attract amateur ghostbusters and make AirBnB prices go up, you have to admit that the testimonies from the visitors at 39 De Grey Street in Hull, Great Britain, would make it hard for anyone to question that this house is haunted.

'The Longest Anyone Has Lasted Is Four Days'

Considered to be "one of the most haunted houses in Britain" and named "The Hostel" by paranormal fans, 39 De Grey Street is a seven-bedroom house that has been broken into by police because of sightings of faces at the windows.

With the housing market being what it is, I feel bad for poor Andy Yates, who probably thought he was lucky to own an entire house until he realised that no way in hell he would be able to live there. Or anyone else, for that matter.

"I lived in the house by myself, and I came downstairs to find steak knives balanced on the plates in the drying rack. I've tried to rent the house out a couple of times, but the longest anyone has lasted is four days."

So he's resorted to renting it out for a night here and there, but even the ghost experts don't stay longer than a day.

'This Feeling Of Sickness Came Over Us'

People reported feeling nauseous when they were standing inside, like Becci Cook, 26:

"The activity started the moment we got inside. Things moved and three people even vomited. There was this amazing feeling of sickness that came over us. Doors opened on their own and one man even had a ball thrown at him when he said he could live here."

And that wasn't just a one-time occurrence. Medium Jolene Lockwood recalls the same feeling of physical sickness:

"Hair being touched, feelings of sickness and emotions."

'Each Ghost Hunt Is Different'

If your brain is already going NOPE, you're probably wondering why these people would even step in a house that has been so famous for its otherworldly sightings. For some, it's necessary to identify the spirits in order to cure the house of its curse. Sue Thompson, 60, was part of a group who tried to find out exactly which ghosts were there, and why they were angry.

"We got an amazing response from the table-tipping, the seance and the Ouija board. You always got the sense something was standing behind you and the experiments we carried out proved to me something was there. Each ghost hunt is different but you need energy and enthusiasm among the group you are with and there was a lot of that."

Cook said that they managed to name the spirits.

"I came across the names of Walter, Richard and Alexander. The evil spirit admitted to us he had abused and murdered the woman and children. He said the children were buried in the courtyard and were still there."

Would anyone be brave enough to check?

Would you spend a night at this haunted house?
