I've stayed at this hostel twice before without issue but this was the first I found myself really uncomfortable in the space and will likely not be staying here again. I'll spare the full story but am willing to share if you so wish, but due to misinformation provided to me upon checkin I had arrived back early in the morning to find someone in my bed, to keep things brief I had to ask for assistance from the desk who simply gave me more attitude than a hormonal teen being asked to tidy his room once in a while, he was short and dismissive basically groaned and rolled his eyes anytime I opened my mouth or even took a step. I was also had about 10 showers whilst I was staying there and still for the life of me can not figure out how that shower works, I just had to be happy that water came out and ignore the gaping hole directly above me. If I have one word of praise all I can say is thank you for upgrading your free breakfast from just a bag of pancake powder and a slap on the ass.

The bathrooms and showers have poor or no ventilation. In some bathrooms, hot water is connected to both hot and cold valves, resulting in much lost energy.

The bedding in RM 5 looked clean, however there was black fabric or black fuzz (not bugs) on the bed. As a result it made me question how often you all switched out sheets.

Cynthia, thank you for leaving this feedback. We really appreciate hearing directly from our guests on . And in this instance we can be given the opportunity to clarify as needed. Our bedding is changed after each guest checks out. Sheets are washed and dried in the machine and what you may have seen could have been lint from the dryer. Please always feel free to bring something like that to our attention. Thank you for letting us know now and I hope that does not deter you from any future visits. Happy Travels!
