Does Temporary Wallpaper Work Well?

Good Questions

Q: My apartment has a dark hallway space and I thought some bright, fresh temporary wallpaper might class it up and add more interest than new paint. Has anyone ever tried temporary wallpaper before? Before I shell out the money for it in a rental space, I'd like to know if it really sticks well to the wall (no peeling) yet also comes off cleanly in case I want to reuse it in a future space.
