No biggie.  As a guest, you have to be flexible.  If someone is not comfortable they can book a hotel room with their specific needs.  <<We do this when we will need additional air conditioning accomodations.

I think it’s totally fine, as long as you’re sleeping in the same room. Since you’re a guest, I definitely wouldn’t rearrange the beds to make two twins into a king. You might damage something in the moving process or insult your hosts if they see that you rearranged things!

I actually did this in college with Mr. Joseph; the room I was subletting had two twin beds and I was the only one. Even if you push the beds together, there’s still a gap in the middle of the bed and you would probably end up sleeping on the twin mattresses anyway (who wants to feel like they’re falling through a crack while they sleep?). You can buy special padding to fill the gap, but I think it would be ridiculous to bring that with you when you’re traveling.

I’d be grateful for a place to rest, who cares if you sleep separately for a night or three?
