One time our porter caught a couple of cheeky guests.
“At the beginning of my shift there was a lot of fuss with a group of German party people. They balanced on the brink of being evicted. A lot of their wrongdoing they did with their penises. Luckily they did behave the rest of the night.”
One time a guest discovered that hipsters are people too.
“Top banana! Very much a “millennials” hotel, full of hipsters (I counted three pugs and countless man-buns). Don’t let this put you off, hipsters are people too, & pretty nice ones at that – especially the warm & friendly staff here. (…)”
One time a baby almost got born in room 304.
“Last Thursday we slept in room 304 with the four of us: me, my boyfriend and our two kids. It became an unforgettable experience that we’d like to share with you. I was nine months pregnant and my water broke in the middle of the night. Very special and unexpected! We made it to our house just in time for the birth of our daughter Dalia in the morning!! We want to thank you guys for all of your help, so we could be on our way quickly. She was close to being a Volkshotel baby ;)!!”
