Stayed there for one night with 5 friends. Initially internet booked for 6-bedroom room and got confirmation for 6-bedroom room. Upon checking in we were told that the arrangement was 2 person in 6-bedroom room (with 4 other people), and another 4 in one 4-bedroom room. We were given "take-it-or-leave-it" option.
