The easiest way to go to the police station is:
While you are in the station look for a bobby. They are a very nice people who wander around the stations to help tourists. You can identify them because they wear a kind of uniform and a big hat.
They are trained to understand foreign people by mimic. For example, if you want to visit the police station, you have to address to a bobby and saying him Mr. Bobby take his hat and wear it on your head. This is easily recognised and he will ask for a vehicle and guide you to the police station in a free tour.
If you want to eat free for a couple of days you have to hit him on the belly and a by kicking him in the bum you get a free one week sleeping ticket.
