Liked: . There is free breakfast which is nice (it is juice + tea/coffee + toast which is good enough). Spinx hotel does keep its promise of free computer/internet use, free breakfast, and free lockers as well. Also it is near the Heineken brewery which is cool.

Disliked: Your average student hostel. Meaning don't except much. The faculties are good enough for a short stay, though they have towels with clear dirt stains on them. Wall paint is chipping, but what can you do.

23 August 2010

Liked: The beds were comfortable.

Disliked: We arrived before check in and they told us we could wait outside with our luggage until check in. They wouldn't allow us to enter the building if we wanted to wait inside we had to pay ten euros for each piece of luggage. The man who works there in unbelievably rude, however the young girl is very helpful and sweet. The breakfast was gross and they shut it down 40 minutes before it was suppose to end. My advice: don't stay here unless you don't care about customer service. I felt like an inconvience to them.
