    I filled in the radio buttons because it was the only way I could leave a review.I can't review it because I didn't stay there. I called and cancelled the minute I received my confirmation because I read they had strict age restrictions. The man I spoke to told me he would cancel the booking in their system without charge and told me to contact hostel world to get my deposit back. I paid a flexible deposit. How do I arrange for it to go into an escrow account to go towards my next booking
