Really bad experience!!! First it is written in the hostelworld description that they reimburse the airport transfer if you stay min 3 nights but then you receive an email from the hostel mentioning that you need to stay 7n. Staff not smiley at all, need to pay for everything even WiFi, 30d caution for a key card working only sometimes.My friend had his working shoes stolen in front of his room. With the camera they identified the robber, shoes given back but no com gest or guest fired... Staff?


I loved the pool area and bar outside


I was put in a dorm with a notice on the door that read 'This room is unacceptable. Please tidy the room. This is your last warning' If the room is unacceptable to the staff then why is it acceptable to put a paying customer in there? After I complained I was put in another dorm. The staff didn't return my driving licence after they photcopied it at check in. When I went back to reception they said they didn't have it which meant I couldn't hire a car. They found it the next day though

Very noisy, very small room for the price, no fan on the toilette (means That was very very hot and humid), common areas dirty and staff not friendly. Bad value for money.
