We had a reservation and we paid for it. The man at the reception had no reservation and no room. We had to stay in another hostel. Now we don't get the money back, we get no answer from the hostel and no answer from the headquarters.

The best positive point is the location at the hostel. The room (private with bathroom) could be more ventilated; there was a terrible mold smelling and it was very hard to sleep. We had to keeep the window opened to reduce the bad smelling but it didn't work very well.
