    The manager the old blond guy is definitely not made to work in front of people. hostel was ok but expensive. not very clean. My first my room was smelly and so dirty.... it was toooo HOT in the room there is no AC. my pillow was yellow/brown instead of white. there is nothing to do unless drinking party. They took my food cause the rule is no food in the room but it was just pasta.... but it's allowed to drink in the room obviously.... stupid rule and everyone was eating snacks or whatever so.
