I arrived in the Nanyuan Airport in Beijing and called to get directions to the hostel
they had no clue how to explain it.
Made my way on my own by busses and subways to find the hostel.
I reserved the four bed dorm online prior to my visit.
once i got in the girl at the counter said that they don't have a 4 room dorm available (probably because they don't update the room status online.) so they have another room ready for me.
she showed me to my room.
The room was in a shack on top of the hostels roof.
the same shack used as the managers office and staff kitchen.
it was the smallest room with a metal frame bunk bed.
there wasn't even a mattress on the bed. Just a sheet.
and they were planning on charging me the full amount as if i was to sleep in the 4 bed dorm.
I came back to the girl at the counter telling her it was ridiculous. She said "I know" and smiled.
she then offered me to move to a 6 bed dorm. (which i had no idea existed)
she gave me back part of the money.
i pre paid part of the money on the internet with my reservation, doing the math i found that i got less money than i was supposed to get in return.
i told her about it.
Lucky Family - Worst hostel experience i've ever had.
luckily it was for only one night.
