As luck would have it we never actually ended up staying here.
We reserved a double room for 2 nights and on turning up the conversation went like this:
Us: Hi, we reserved a double room for 2 nights.
Hostel Harmonia: ummm, we don't appear to have that reservation and the room is now booked.
Us: Strange, because you sent me an email yesterday confirming it.
Hostel Harmonia: Really ?
Us: Yes, look it's there in your outbox, sent not more that 20hrs ago.
Hostel Harmonia: Oh.
To their credit they offered us a better room at the same price, however we took one look at it and ran for our lives. The room looked pretty grimy and was at the top of a wobbly spiral staircase which you had to go through 2 dorms to get to. I know health and safety is possibly not at the top of every hostel go'ers adgenda, but rest assured, if there was a fire in that place you would be toast.
