This review serves as a warning, not as a recommendation of any sort. I've had the bad fortune of visiting this hostel a while ago, in a stiflingly hot summer, together with my then girlfriend. I agree totally with another reviewer that this place reminds the visitor of both 'the Shining' and the 'Blair Witch Project' -- alternatively you may think of the hostel as a horror version of Fawlty Towers, ergo comically bad service meets a nightmare.
