    This is how I am treated by Sparky; "Checkout by 10:00 means get out of the hostel by 10:00". He then asks "when am I catching the bus" etc and tells me "oh I guess you can stay until 11:00". He also says "well it is a nice day outside anyways". The last thing he says is "you can store your bags at the i-site". (the i-site is where you catch the bus and get dropped of by the bus). I thought he had a miserable attitude.
