    I attempted to contact the hostel prior to my arrival by email and phone and heard nothing back. I sent four emails about a week in advance and received no response. Also, when I arrived in country and tried calling the hostel to confirm my reservation (as is requested if paying with PayPal), no one answered the phone. As such, when I arrived late at night, I had no idea if they still had my reservation. It's not an inexpensive hostel relative to other places in the area, so I expected more.
