I was surprised that there were not lockers in the dorm rooms to secure valuables. Many travel with computers or other electronic gear as well as passports, wallets, credit cards etc. that need greater obscurity that just locked luggage.

The person at the reception did help me reschedule my further YHA bookings but not only he took a lot of time, he made me feel couple of times that I am making him do a lot of work. In fact he suggested that I write to customer care and sort it directly. But after requesting him, he did finally did the rescheduling
