European trip

We were cheated!
We booked a room for one night with the breakfast and payed like that, but when we arrived they told us we are not entitled to breakfast, so we had to pay it once again.

Winner all the way
The one night stay was amazing. Early check-in, no luxuries but fully functional room and bathroom, hearty breakfast, just a short walk from the station at the price! It’s a steal.

Good serviceable Dresden hostel near Hbf
Overnight stay in Dresden, decided to stay here due to its location 10 min walking from Hbf. Staff were deadset on a 3 PM check-in so I had to wait several hours, even though I bet the hostel was not fully booked in January. They also charge for use of the sheets, which I avoided by bringing my own blanket. That aside, the room was very comfortable with a good shower and plenty of space, even with a high # of persons/room. Location is near Hbf and a tram stop that drops you off only a block away which was very convenient.

for you're a better man than I, Gunga Din
There was a guy who came in about 23:30 and wheezed and made gawd awlful noises till 7 AM. The was some poor Indian sleeping right next to him who could not have slept at all. When the Indian left at 6 AM I asked him. Did you have a good nite's sleep. I couldn't help but laugh. It was a bad nite for both of us..
