He estado en los hostels de Hostelling International en Boston, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Málaga, Milán, New York, Barcelona y en Viena. Nunca recibí como turista un trato tan descortés en esta cadena de hostels. Los hombres encargados de la recepción fueron siempre groseros con las preguntas de los visitantes, contestando de manera cortante y rápida, sin ningún interés por ayudar. Ni siquiera tuvo la amabilidad de decirnos que para ir al Bahnhof debíamos comprar un tiquete de bus antes de subir al bus y nosotros con nuestras maletas tratando de resolver problemas. Mal trato para dar indicaciones sobre las horas de comida y desayuno. Aunque siempre dijeron estar "disponibles las 24 horas" la verdad es que solo están ahí, no supieron responder preguntas típicas de turistas como "dónde puedo comer comida local cerca?" Una mala experiencia. Los turistas somos nuevos en las ciudades, hacemos muchas preguntas y a veces preguntas tontas pero es lo normal no? Si vas a trabajar con turistas deberías tener eso en mente y tratar de ser amable. Muchos será su primera vez en la ciudad y otros la única... Como en nuestro caso. En este hostel de HI es el único donde no volvería!

Staff friendliness was variable, mostly matter of fact. The hostel is more institutional-looking than other HI hostels and does not have pleasant common rooms for socializing. The breakfast was great. Unfortunately, there was no other food available during the day. The location is convenient to sites, restaurants and transit. My room (for 6) was clean and spacious. The price is low, compared with other HI hostels.
