Firstly, Ukulele made a very good impression. Beautiful old building, nice pool.
A) The lockers are open on the rear which you cannot see at all. Means they are not safe and a thieve stole more than 300US$ without breaking anything. And we were told (in written!) to put all the valuables in there. At least the hostel owner refunded our stay but, he did not take responsibilities for the unsafe lockers. Our lock was safe so that this robberies could happen is the hostels fault. It happened to other people in the hostel as well.
B) The 12 bed dorm is very noise and it is hard to sleep before 1 or 2 am until everybody went to bed. Guests arriving late we're brought to the dorm with a lot of noise by the staff and they switched on lights, too. I am sleeping with earplugs but it was very hard to find sleep over there... and we stayed for 3 nights with changing guests.
