    Reception girls the rudest most uneducated people I have come across. The only girl with any hospitality skills was the Finish girl, she knew how to treat guests. There is this middle aged Italian man that lives there that thinks he is some sort boss there Luigi or loui i dont know. Bit of a busy body! The manager guy seemed cool. But think they should hire some actual English people. Way to many Long term stayers. Has the potential to be a really good Hostel.
