Austrian Altruist Opens His Brothel to Homeless; Offers 10 People Free Rooms Due to Extreme Cold

The Austrian Times website reports today (February 9, 2012) that homeless people are lining up for rooms in an Austrian brothel, after owner Peter Laskaris said it would be unfair not to do everything he could during the current cold spell.

Laskaris -- owner of the Red Rooms Laufhaus in the Austrian capital Vienna -- has opened his door to the homeless as temperatures of 20 degrees below zero hit the city.

He is offering 10 people a night a bed in his brothel for free, including a hot shower and a hot meal. Laskaris also said each homeless guest will get clean bedding and fresh towels each day.

But he added: "Other services are not included."
