Possibly the worst hostel we've ever visited. Inept management out of their depth. They need training - they could not understand the HI booking confirmation and were totally confused by the different currencies stated on the HI booking. They could not provide the room type we had booked and paid for in full on arrival. They tried to put us in a much inferior room. Eventually they gave us a full refund after much discussion and wasted time, and we then found our own hostel by walking around

Depois de subir até o topo da ilha, com malas... (e é muito longe) Chegamos lá e a senhora informou que o quarto que reservamos não estava disponível... Ela ofereceu outros, mas disse que alguns não poderíamos ficar pois estavam reservados... Não entendi porque nossa reserva foi ignorada e as outras continuavam valendo... Resumindo ficamos em outra hospedagem...Perdemos o dinheiro pago na reserva, e vou voltar pro hostelworld que nunca tive problema parecido.

There wasn't hot water for the shower, electrical plugs in the room and the hostel administrator wasn't open to dialog at the moment to make suggestions
