I made a hasty decision and now I'm regretting it.

Just today I signed the contract, and handed over the money for a bedsit (in London, UK). I think I may have made the worst possible decision in my life.
After lugging my clothes and other essentials from my old flat, I discovered that the bed was simply uninhabitable. It seems that the last tenant had broken off one of the legs on the bed and just wedged it back between the bed and floor. Not only that, but the but one of the metal slats(?) had been broken, so half the bed just sinks down.
I've tried ringing both the landlord, and his agent to see what can be doneand can't get through to either (I've spent about £10 just this evening trying to get through). And as if all that isn't enough, the wall between my room, and the next is paper thin, and I can hear his TV as if it was right next to me.
I've not eaten all day, and feeling really fragile. I don't know what to do. Frankly I'd like to just get my money back and find somewhere else. But that ain't going to be possible is it?
