Disappointing Stay, we left early
Well first I should say that we left early also because Cork was so dissappointing, but we had no desire to stay in Kinlay Hostel for a second night. Although we booked online, when we arrived they asked us to pay again. Luckily, we avoided being charged twice. Then we were told where our room was- although we paid the rate for a private double room, we were put into a 14-bed dorm. The code for the door didn't work so the room was left unlocked with no place to store valuables. When we got inside, there was someone in one of our beds and an extra cot on the floor. The room smelled a little funky as well, which is to be expected when you pack that many people into a small space.
While trying to sleep, there were two other people consistently snoring all night, which I know is not the fault of the hostel, but it just added to our overall experience.
The next morning, we tried to shower after the rough night, to find out that the co-ed showers sure are hot, in fact so hot that the water is scalding. Neither of us could stand it long enough to actually get clean. I wet out to find a different shower, wandering through the most confusing building I have ever been in in my towel, but to no avail.
When we asked to check out early, they somehow didn't seem surprised...
