Although we paid a deposit when we arrived all they had left was a more expensive room. We chose the hostel for the free Wi-Fi but the manager told us he couldn't give us the password until the next day (24 hr reception advertised). We were unable to use the 1, slow computer after waiting ~5hrs. The advertised common room was being used as a dorm & the kitchen had nowhere to prepare food, no hotplate or stove for cooking, not enough cups, or utensils & the only sink in the bathroom.
