    We just stayed one night there. On the same day evening I got a call from the hostel asking my checkin time. As I was trapped in motorways traffic jam I informed them that I'll be late but they warned me to checkin within night 11, as per hostel rule. But at last we managed to reach there at night 11:45 but still they have welcomed us, I really thank them for their help.
