Strange key pick, but it all turned out to be allright, some guy came to bring us our key.

We booked a 3 bed private for 2 nights. The first night we were taken down the road to a very old building and given a 5 bed. To get to our room we had to go through another groups room, (toilet and everything) NOT ideal for anyone after a night out, and not exactly private rooms.We were also woken up to leave the room by 10am and go to the initial hostel for the 2nd nights stay.Very annoying. The 2nd night was fine apart from the VERY BAD mattresses and squeaky bunk.Beware of the 1st place.

do not exactly understand why it is a problem to be in a larger room, as long as you are alone in there. we also have dorm room, that is not private, and people go through it. of course it was not ideal for you, as you came back very late screaming after each night out, and others became very angry. this has nothing to do with group rooms, but your behaviour. toilet and everything is shared-as advertised on the webpage also..
