i believe i was racial judged by the manager Chris. when i was standing in the hallway and reading the wall board. he almost ran to me and asked, if i am a guest, i said yes, then he asked my name, i mentioned my name. then he tried to make some small talk, and asked which room i am in? i showed my key and opened the room. then he believed i am a guest. i understand, i was the only dark skin person in hostel. but there are lot of other way to verify, looks like it happened only to me.
