I wanted a single room but they were sold out. They offered me 2 nights in a dormitory type room with 4 other beds, in addition to a shared bathroom and shower etc... Although I admit I was a bit nervous about this, I decided it would be an adventure and a welcome break from the usual experience.
The hotel is in a perfect location, close to everything. You can crawl from the Warmoes leather bars if needed.
It was clean and very friendly. My roommates were very nice. A German, a Scot and a Brit. Although I did not see them much as we were all out on the town most of the time. There was never a wait for the bathrooms or showers and I felt comfortable. I was concerend about being able to clean up before a big night on the town, but there was no need to worry.
In the morning, Bill made me a breakfast omlette at the bar. Was very nice and much more than I expected for the price. They also had free wifi and even a computer to use.
The only issue I had was getting my luggage up and down the stairs early in the morning when the main corridor (bar) was closed, but I managed without waking up the entire building. But I recommend you plan ahead if you have lots of luggage or checkout at a normal hour when they are open.
Bottomline. It is what you make it. If the Warmoes leather bars are your scene, you are friendly, social and you are not a prissy queen. You will find this hotel to be a great bargain and a fun experience.
