I think I imagined it being worse.

The air is constantly filtered and regularly replenished by cargo missions, so I suppose if doesn't get too stale.

And when you live in it... you probably get accustomed to the smell.

That's certainly true, but you would notice when you first arrived.

I've not read reports of astronauts complaining of the smell. That's not true of the old Gemini and Apollo missions. When the recovery teams opened up the capsules after missions lasting up to two weeks the smell was, apparently, pretty bad.

Ah yes, the perfect reading material while sitting on my own, unsophisticated Earth toilet.
