Either get rid of the karaoke machine or set a strict time limit. When one guest with bad tone is allowed to sing for literally four hours it ruins the lounge for everyone else.

Overall a fairly good hostel compared to some of the ones I stayed in in Europe, but fairly expensive. There were 9 other people in our room, and the room was clean, but cudve been cleaner. The room generally smelled of sweat. There were also only a single bathroom and shower for 10 people, which is ridiculous. All in all, this hostel was overpriced
