What travellers think


I booked online. They screwed up my reservation and gave away my room! The girl at the reception - she had no common sense, no intelligence, incompetent! She didn't believe me when I told her that I had a reservation! I had to go to the third floor THREE times to get wifi to show her the booking number and at the end she tells me that they don't have any free rooms, in other words, she gave away my room! Please hire some people with common sense and intelligence. This girl was just incompetent and unintelligent! Also, while I was there, waiting for her to find my reservation, she spent about 10-15 minutes talking on the phone! DO NOT GO TO THIS HOSTEL! The whole place smelled like fish because there's like a fish place next door. Staff is DUMB and RUDE! NEVER AGAIN!
