Was initially told when I booked we could come anytime. On day we were arriving when I called to say I'll be there at 11pm, was told they lock up at 10pm however the host was professional and accommodated us he waited till 11. We were just staying overnight and it was exactly what we needed clean comfortable beds. Will definitely stay there again. Remember to take towels.
