          Room was very small and old with ugly (noisy) view. Dirty drap. Minimum breakfast. Horrible coffee. Extra expensive price. The hall and the restaurant are two (only) positive thing here, but I believe I could get better with the prive I've paid.

          My friend and I have an early flight arrival, and check in isn't until 2:00 PM. Can we arrive at the hostel, drop off our luggage so we can explore the city, and return at 2:00 PM to check in?

          Of course, any accommodation will usually let you do this and if your room is ready when you do get there early, a really good accommodation provider will let you into the room too.
