I was stolen $100 here. Or, it could be the hostel I stayed night before, but anyway I found the fact in this hostel, Bearded Monkey.
What do you do if you get stolen something? Of course, you call police. But in a very bad manner, they tried to prevent me calling police! Saying, "even if you call police, your money won't be back. Why do you bother? you'll lose your time, and our time as well. Also harm our reputations". This selfish statement made me even more suspicious about them and mad as you can imagine.
Anyway I forced them to call police. All staff was properly pissed off with me. After 2hrs waiting (police this country is... better not to say), finally police came and investigated a bit. I spoke quite a bit of Spanish, still I let a guy staff who spoke OK English translate from Spanish to English. He was well grump, and after police left, he said to me "you should be more serious in front of police". Who was hell less serious than me? I had enough so I told them I wanted to leave immediately, requiring payback. Then the owner started swearing at me "What a bad person!". I wanted to say same thing to her so I did.
Anyway, maybe they are OK in a normal occasion, but as come to the emergency, they'll be totally useless and irresponsible. Definitely not recommendable.
