I'm glad you've sent me this survey because I have a big complaint to make about this hostel and its manager. I was booked to stay for 4 nights in a single room there but the day before I left Australia I received an email from the manager, who said there'd been an electrical blow-out in the local power station which had caused an electrical fire in the hostel so they would have to carry out renovations for 2 weeks and I wouldn't be able to stay there. I had already paid a deposit of $16.80 Australian, which the manager said he would refund to me. That was on 23rd January. It's now 17 days later and I still haven't received this money. I've emailed him 10 times, giving him my bank details and he's only replied 2 or 3 times. He says he has paid this money through Western Union but I have not received it. I've checked with my bank and there is no money pending to be deposited into my account so the manager is either lying about sending me my refund or he sent it to the wrong account number. Whatever, I want this money back. It seems he's never going to pay it so is there anything HI can do for me? If I don't receive this refund within a few days I'm going to give the Pines Hostel terrible reviews on Trip Advisor because its manager is a thief. Could you please out sort this problem for me.

First, we regret the method of communication in the text We contacted the customer ten days before his arrival and explained what happened, and asked him if he wanted to help All this in the e-mail between us The bank transfer was made by us, and we notified the customer of this order on February 1, 2019 We have already sent the amount of 17 Australian dollars and we have received an additional commission of 55 Australian dollars We will send a notice to the bank via email to the customer We again regret what happened
