We had issues with this hostel from the beginning. Check in is not at 10 am ( we had to bargain the check-in at 11am) and the room is not like the one in the photo (no window and shells like mold). The kitchen is very dirty and not well equipped. Some people of the staff are not very friendly and do not know basic staff. e.g. password and how the stove works.
