    There was no where to lock away valuables like passports and things like that. The shower head didn't work and splurted water everywhere and there were people very drunk coming through the hostel yelling and slamming doors all night long and someone kept knocking on our door all night too. The staff were friendly enough but he atmosphere wasn't great and I didn't feel very comfortable
