    Weird communication with staff through whatsapp. Honestly felt like I was staying at a strict parents house with all the rules and fines they sent me. No hot water and the showers had a timer like what you'd see at the pool. The atmosphere was 'back room' vibes

    The Arc Hostel is well located and cheap. However, don’t except too much cleanliness. Also, one night one guy of the staff team came into our female dorm without knocking and asked whether anybody of us lost her bra in the toilet (wtf?!). I would not book it again.

    Myself and my 4 mates were going to visit ARC House for a long weekend. Because we had 5 beds they charged us 50 % non-refundable booking fee for our reservation. Hostel was closed at the time of our reservation because of COVID-19 situation and we couldn't use our accommodation. I asked for a refund of the booking fee because they couldn't deliver the service that we have paid for but ARC House didn't return the booking fee and only option they gave us was to move our reservation.

    I don't recommend to stay in this hostel! The stuff was not helpful at all, there was nobody at the reception most of the time, the lady who worked there was just annoyed by every question I made and one dude who is also part of the stuff was even offering me to sleep in HIS ROOM !! sorry but a young woman travelling alone means not that she is up for whatever!! Just don't stay there, the (cheap) price is not worth it.

    They charged me mire than expected. Also the room was dirty, smell awful and somebody stole my shampoo and perfume. Worst place ever. I would never stayed here again. Staff was rude when I asked what happen to my shampoo. They told me I'm sorry we don't have any cameras and they literally close me the door in my face.
