Hostel Kaktus was closed when we arrived. When's called the staff, she told us quite unfriendly that she wrote us an email. I checked later, the email was send the night before at 10:30 pm. Being on the road, it is impossible to check your mails in the middle of the night. It took 4 tries to understand the address of the hostel Daniela, which we were referred to. When we told her that we didn't know where it was the answer was: "Not my problem."

the hostel was above a Jehova's church, so every morning we woke up because of the mass (with songs). Furthermore, the staff smoked in the reception and corridor, so when we opened the door for only one minute, our room completely smelled like smoke too. they let their dog walk through the building. The shower was very small and old and you had to hold the showerhead because it wasnt attached to the wall. The paint of the walls was coming off everywhere. We did'nt cook because of the smoking.

Comfortable and clean hostel with a good location. Only hostel on our trip where we were given towels and a spacious room. Only issue was that it was very noisy on two of our three days early in the morning - music, window cleaning and hoovering.
