Have you ever gone to a hostel and the staff running it treated you like another number? This isn't the case here at the purple pig. George will bring you in an treat you like family. He goes above and beyond any hostel management's care for their guests. George saved my ass in more ways than I can count. From rushing me to the ferry and barely making my trip out, to taking me to the health center when I was in need of it most. He made my Ios experience unforgettable and I recommend him A
