Visitors to the Hotel CasAnus in Belgium will spend the night in one of the human body's filthiest organs.

Located on a small island between Antwerp and Ghent in Flanders, the hotel is shaped like a giant colon, complete with a giant replica of an anus, The Huffington Post reported.

Originally an art piece, Hotel CasAnus is the creation of Dutch designer Joep Van Lieshout.

It's now run by Belgian couple Geert and Carla Verbeke-Lens, who purchased the hotel as part of their 30-acre Verbeke Foundation sculpture park, according to Oddity Central.

While it may sound gross to spend the night in the human digestive tract, visitors overall report a positive experience.

The interiors feature double beds, showers and central heating. And no, they aren't blood red like the exterior, but painted white instead.

Travel blogger Tom Hall wrote, "It is as normal as sleeping in a slug-like space can be."
