I hope all is ok in the morning!
It's all OK, I suppose. Reception is at a pub attached to the hostel, and even with the pub empty just as they opened they kicked me out and won't allow me to just take a table and work from there. So I'll try to sneak into google offices and work from there instead. But otherwise, it's a cheap and halfway decent to just sleep in. Assumming I'll have to spend all working time at the convention next week, it does the trick just barely. Disappointing disappointment, after all.
