Our hostels.com confirmed reservation wasn't "a confirmed reservation" even though I had put a deposit down online. They were full even though it was off season. An hour of sitting in the lobby trying to find other accommodations, the helpful receptionist said she moved some incoming guests around so we could check in to the "hostel room". A large room on the 3rd floor with 5 beds and some rolling trundle beds. The room was clean and big. The room, however, had 2 glass doors which was the only downside for lack of privacy. I'm hoping hostels.com will refund my deposit since it didn't secure my reservation. Oh & The lava lounge is right across the street which makes lots of noise until 11-12 at night. I heard the rooster mentioned in other entries but it was never loud enough to wake me up on it's own. Cock-a-doodle-do!
