So many things are wrong about this place but I can't stand snobbish and rude people. I stayed here for 3 nights because I had to, due to my travel restrictions. I got really good sense of staff during this time. An example is that picture attached. You find it funny? I find it funny as well. And it turned to be annoying. I got this ticket for internet use but the staff is unattentive and flying around after she handed me this ticket and just difficult to get hold of her to get this fixed. I could see that she is not in a mood listen to the issue. I guess some people don't know how to interact or what to do with some people from different world. Not a good place to stay. The hostel is okay in terms of cleanliness and facilities. But it can get loud at night.
