We were two people in a twin...and I sort of had to wonder if the twins were actually singles with two beds in them. You needed to crawl over one bed to get to the other...sort of wish they hadn't bothered with any furniture other than the beds, but I fuss they need them to get their star rating. I'm tall, but certainly couldn't stand up straight in a large amount of the space. The place was certainly clean, so no issues there (the sheets did have some stains, but they were clean...)
I hate to say it, but the super nice guy at checkin was also a bit of a bummer. My friend was sick and needed some advice for stomach medicine...not any help to be found from reception on an all night pharmacy...nor for bar or restaurant recommendations in the area, as he wasn't from around there, he basically didn't know anything about where to go. That was a real bummer, despite the guy being so nice and speaking basically PERFECT English.
I was jet lagged and up late. At 1:30am they lock the common space which I thought was sort of lame as well.
So, we checked out a day early. They kindly gave us one nights money back (minus deposit, which went to Hostelworld.com), and moved to a hotel which my sick friend would be more comfortable and where we could actually both fit in the room.
For a budget place? Acceptable...
But even a hostel has someone who knows where to get a drink or food late at night. And a late night pharmacy should be a must-known for all staff...
